What began as a $9,000 investment by Mr. Nations has grown into a $100M+ success story only three generations later - run by the family and its employees.
In 2015, B&D Industrial rolled-out an employee stock ownership plan, and the company became family and employee-owned.
Industrial Distribution Magazine names Bearings and Drives "Distributor of the Century."
John D. Nations founded our company in 1947 with $9,000 under the original moniker “Bearings and Drives.”
