Four More Become Certified Bearing Specialists - 01/29/08
Today Bearing Headquarters President, Jim Timble, announced that four more of its employees, Joe Glyzewski, John Griese, Johnathan Thrasher and Duane Wagner, have been given the Certified Bearing Specialist (CBS) designation from the Bearing Specialists Association (BSA).
They join previous BHQ recipients of the CBS status: John Decker, Chris Brownlow, Toby Stinson, Mark Corbin, Rich Hopkins, Greg Dovel, Chris Galeener, John Griese, Frank Haynes, Rob Walters, and Bryan Labus.
Jim Timble added that “Certified Bearing Specialists are individuals with excellent knowledge in the selection, application and analysis of bearings. It is no easy feat to become a CBS. In fact, only a very small percentage of all management and sales personnel throughout our industry are CBS certified. The standards, that must be met to become certified, are both strict and challenging.
The CBS designation ensures that Bearing Headquarters’ customers can be highly confident in the quality of knowledge and high skills BHQ’s CBS personnel possess. Certification strengthens the bearing industry by elevating professional standards, enhancing individual performance, and recognizing individuals who demonstrate the technical knowledge and critical skills necessary to provide effective service and solutions in the workplace.
It is the goal of Bearing Headquarters to have all its sales force and customer service representatives gain the CBS designation as it solidifies its place as the undisputed leader of the Bearing Distribution industry.
