Napoleon Engineering Services announced today that is has appointed Carter Manufacturing Limited as its sole distributor for NES products and services in Europe.
“Carter is a great fit for NES, as we are both niche providers of bearing products and services for similar markets” said Chris Napoleon, President and Chief Engineer of Napoleon Engineering Services. “The aerospace industry in particular requires highly engineered bearing products in very small batch quantities but on faster lead times than the major global bearing suppliers can provide. Our typical lot size for custom bearings is 25 to 50 pieces, with lead times of between 12 and 26 weeks, which is significantly faster than other major bearing suppliers.”
“We are delighted to be appointed as the sole distributor for NES products and services in Europe” said Karl Brundell, Managing Director of Carter Manufacturing Limited. “With our local market knowledge combined with NES’ expertise in the manufacture of custom bearings for challenging applications, we would expect to see a great deal of interest from customers in Europe who will see strong opportunities for custom engineered bearings. In a marketplace that has traditionally been dominated by major global bearing manufacturers that require large volumes to start production, this new distribution agreement will provide a solution to satisfy this need,” he added.
