A family run business
With roots firmly in the Midlands, the Handley family has been shaping the bearings industry since the mid-1920s. Three generations later, the granddaughter of the late John Handley (Snr), daughter of John Handley (Jr), is at the helm – delivering with integrity the exacting standards which have formed the foundation of the business for over 50 years.

What we offer
BESPOKE BEARING SPECIFICATION
Our highly trained team have technical knowledge which spans the breadth of the bearing trade, which is why, when it comes to finding a bearing product which isn’t ‘off the shelf’, we are best placed to identify the right component.
PRODUCT AND INDUSTRY KNOWLEDGE
John Handley Bearings holds unrivalled product and industry knowledge, which is why we act as the bearing specification partner to many customers looking to optimise the performance of their plant or machinery.
Bulk purchasing your bearing products can deliver impressive cost efficiencies, but unless you have somewhere to store your stock, these savings are not always achievable.
Understanding the specification and logistical requirements of our customers helps us to surpass expectations throughout the bearing selection and delivery process.
