We have one of the largest stocks of rolling bearings worldwide. With over 12.000 part numbers ranging from small to extra-large sizes, the current stock reflects the international vocation of RKB to support customers in a variety of industries worldwide. Besides a well-stocked warehouse in terms of bearing variety and availability, a strong logistics organization is strictly necessary to efficiently serve the global market.

 

For this reason, all RKB stocks around the world are run by a proprietary software system (ASSM – Active Stock System Management) that optimizes lead time and drastically decreases machine downtime for the customer. Finally, RKB stock strategy features the JIT bundle which supports a special form of in-house consignment stock program to ease the customer’s financial position and ensure availability of requisite spare parts based on a partnership approach.
