From the first bearing fitted in 1967, Thordon Bearings is a family business started in 1911 with factories in Canada and Poland whose employees share a passion for the environment.
Burlington, Ontario, Canada
Thordon Bearings designs and manufactures a complete range of high performance, environmentally friendly journal bearing and seal solutions for marine, pump, hydro-turbine, offshore oil and other industrial markets. In 1980, the company moved from its Hamilton, ON Queen Street location to Burlington where it is now home to its 17,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility, administrative offices, in-house application design expertise, customer service and new product development.
In 2011, land was purchased in Slupsk, Poland to build a polymer manufacturing plant to supply bearings to our joint venture in Russia and as a back-up to the Burlington plant for the European marketplace. This location began operating in 2013 and is close to the Baltic Sea about half way between Szczecin and Gdansk. The factory is capable of making all Thordon products as a back up to the Burlington plant in case of any situation where Canadian production might be interrupted.
