KINEX BEARINGS, a.s. as a company that only recently celebrated its 110 yearlong tradition has historically already passed quite a few important milestones. Several decades of experience with rolling bearings design and production reflects on today’s leading place of the company when it comes to the manufacture and distribution of these products, worldwide. The company has gone through multiple important moments during the years that added up over the time, which was quite a lot. The year 2018 gives us the opportunity to remember several dates important for our company in the form of jubilees.

Year 1948 – The first moment to remember is also one of the most important ones for our company, autumn of 1948. It has been an unbelievable 70 years since the celebratory excavation and the construction of the production plant for rolling bearings in Kysucké Nové Mesto. This important milestone of our history contributed to the production of the first ball bearing manufactured in Slovakia, two years later in 1950, designated 6204.

Year 1953 - Production plant in Kysucké Nové Mesto as a company expansion also enriched our options to evolve the variety of our assortment. Five years after laying the corner-stone, the portfolio of the production plant in Kysucké Nové Mesto widened by single-row cylindrical roller bearings. Thanks to that, 65 years ago the company found itself in a strong mechanical engineering position as it was able to offer both ball and cylindrical roller bearings.

Year 1958 – New assortment however wasn’t the only memorable event connected to the plant construction in Kysucké Nové Mesto. In 1958, dating back ten years after the foundation of the plant and five years after the start of cylindrical roller bearings production, an independent research and development department was established in the company complex. Today it marks 60 years since the first innovative projects of our company conducted in Kysucké Nové Mesto production plant.

Year 1968 – A couple of years later, the assortment expanded once more. It was exactly during the fourth quarter of 1968 when the company started producing the first type of special double-row ball bearings for the textile open-end spinning machines, in Bytča production plant. After years of successful bearing development in this field and our current decisive market position, we can now speak of a 50 year long experience with special bearings production for textile industry applications.

Year 1978 – The last milestone to remember this year is also the youngest. 1978 was important through its connection to the beginning of the production of special water pump bearings for combustion engines of automobiles. Our portfolio for this segment is currently made of various technological capabilities but our first products ever produced for these applications were special double-row bearings, manufactured in Bytča production plant 40 years ago.

We can reminisce about the defining events of building the tradition of our company through these moments of 2018. Let us recollect on the years of success and development of our company while allowing ourselves an equally varied future.
