About Us

OUR STORY

From Humble Beginnings

Frank Negri ran Jamaica Bearings out of a garage in 1934. Today, we operate with facilities and sales offices throughout North America and the world.

Family Tradition

Through decades of consolidation and change, we’ve remained independent. Our employees maintain an accomplished legacy of integrity and accountability. To our customers and manufacturing partners, we are much more than just a distributor; we are your consultants, your experts, and your trusted associates.

Commitment to Quality

As we have for nearly a century, we stand by our products and we deliver real value every day – which is why Frank’s legacy of a commitment to quality and excellence continues to this day.
