Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing Acquires Aurotek TSB, Inc.

Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing announces that it has acquired the assets of Aurotek TSB, Inc., a fellow bearing manufacturer specialized in the production of precision thin section bearings.

As of February 1, 2021, Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing Inc, an American-based designer and manufacturer of thrust bearings, custom bearings and precision components, is excited to announce that it has acquired the assets of Aurotek TSB, Inc.


Aurotek TSB, Inc. is specialized in the production of precision thin section bearings for a broad array of industries. These bearings are used in a variety of applications, namely, for use in defense weapon systems, medical equipment, radar equipment, aerospace guidance systems, packaging machines, industrial assembly machines, and robotics for security, medical, nuclear and defense systems.

Peter Schroth, President of Auburn Bearing & Manufacturing, notes that this acquisition aligns with our strategy to expand our product offerings to include American-made precision radial bearings, along with our current thrust ball and roller bearings, in low- to mid- volume production runs and with reasonable lead times.
