ABB expands UK network for Dodge products

West Midlands-based Race Transmissions is appointed the first national ABB Ltd authorised value provider for mechanical power transmission products including Dodge bearings and shaft mounted gear reducers.

The company exclusively supplies and supports the full range of Dodge mounted bearings – including Type E tapered roller bearings, S-2000 series spherical roller bearings, along with Grip Tight and E-Z Kleen ball bearings. With some £500,000 worth of products stocked at its Brierley Hill premises, Race has the largest stockholding outside of the USA, where the products are manufactured. 

The ABB authorised value provider programme provides UK customers with ABB Ltd motors, VSDs and mechanical power transmission products together with a wide range of services, technical advice, training and bespoke contracts. Although each ABB authorised value provider is an established and successful engineering company, all members of the network must undertake regular training to ensure their product, industry and technical knowledge is of the standard required to deliver accredited sales, support and service in close cooperation with ABB Ltd.
