PI Bearing Technologies acquired by EnPro Industries

EnPro Industries Inc. announced it has acquired PI Bearing Technologies, a producer of self-lubricating metal-polymer bearings, aluminum bearing blocks and alloy bushings.

Based in Waukegan, Ill., the company will be managed as part of EnPro's GGB Bearing Technology business unit.

PI Bearing Technology manufactures steel-backed, resin and alloy-coated bearings for dry, boundary and fully lubricated applications in many industries, including hydropower. In addition, the company specializes in the production of precision aluminum bearing blocks and wear plates for manufacturers of gear pumps and motors.

"Growing demand for high performance bearings for fluid power applications prompted us to expand our offerings in this important segment, which is currently being served by our facility in Dieuze, France," said GGB President Ken Walker. "By combining GGB's engineering capabilities and global presence with PI's production capacity, we will be able to provide customers of both companies significant benefits in terms of materials, technology, innovative solutions, quality and product availability."

GGB Bearing Technology, formerly Glacier Garlock Bearings, has production facilities in the Americas, Europe and Asia and a global distribution network. The company provides customers throughout the world with bearings for a range of applications.
