The Barden Corp.
The Barden Corp.’s customers have noted the high quality of the precision ball bearings it manufactures for more than 70 years. “From a sales standpoint, it’s nice to go to our customers and know we have the best quality in the industry and that our designs are the most robust,” says Don LeRoy, director of sales and engineering for the Danbury, Conn.-based company. “When customers need bearings for a difficult application, they know they can come to Barden and get the right design from the very beginning. We always say to our customers, ‘bring us your most difficult application, and we can find a bearing solution for it.’”
The ability of Barden’s bearings to withstand extreme environments and perform in critical applications is particularly important in the aerospace industry, one of the company’s main customer bases. “Our bearings are used in flight-critical operations, so if they don’t work properly, the aircraft will have performance issues,” Vice President of Operations Dennis Miller adds.
