About Bartlett Bearing

Bartlett Bearing was started in 1951 by Tom Bartlett as a family run business with the help of his daughter Gayle Musser and her husband Larry. More of Gayle’s siblings are now involved in the running of Bartlett including Tom Bartlett Jr, Sandy Limeburner, Julie Christine and Sarah Musser, Gayle’s daughter.

Bartlett has five facilities located east of the Mississippi specialising in servicing over 1,000 electro mechanical repair facilities. As a company focused on a particular customer base, with all our resources focused on our customers: inventory, service, technical support and of course competitive market attitude, . It is nice to know Bartlett Bearing is the best in the industry we service, recognised by our customers, peers and manufacturers.

My job at Bartlett is very rewarding. One of the benefits of working at Bartlett is being surrounded by great staff, with centuries of experience. P.S. BearingNet has been a great asset.”
