Designers and manufacturers to the world of special heavy duty steel bearing housings, self-aligning plain bearings, fully split bearings, pillow blocks and bearing related products

ARVIS is a bearing manufacturing company that complements rather than competes with other bearing manufacturing companies. As well as the standard ranges of housings, the company has specialist knowledge in the design and production of special bearing housings, plain bearings, self-aligning spherical plain bearings and bearing products, and has been solving bearing problems since 1981.

The company has developed a range of Steel Bearing Housings to replace standard cast iron housings. These housings eliminate breakages and therefore reduce downtime and save you money.

We have long been recognised as the major UK supplier to the bearing distribution industry, the world’s major ball and roller bearing manufacturers and the individual customer when they require special units. We also supply copies of obsolete units working to samples or customer drawings.

The Exalign range of pre-mounted plain bearings is an ARVIS product and is used extensively throughout the world where mounted ball bearings are not suitable.The company is the UK's largest manufacturer of Fully Split Bronze Bearings with considerable stocks, including the DIN505 and DIN506 ranges.

All bearing housings, plain bearings and machined parts are manufactured to a quality system approved by BSI.
