Broadview, IL – September 12, 2006 – Bearing Headquarters Co., a leading bearing-distributor to industry for more than 70 years, and a division of Headco Industries, has reinvented its BHQ website to become more user-friendly, more responsive and more competitive in the bearing industry.

“The redesign was motivated by our unwavering commitment to Service First™ and our need to compete successfully in a global marketplace,” says Jim Scardina, Senior Vice President at BHQ. “In today’s Internet-driven era, customers must be able to find the products, suppliers and services they want, without a hassle, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Bearing Headquarters’ website now lets them do that.”

With a new dynamic supplier database, and real-time product availability through the website’s ecommerce channel, BHQ Express, customers have immediate access to every major bearing and power transmission manufacturer and product. Visitors to the BHQ website can know at a glance the depth of the company’s product line, as well as the quality of its manufacturing components.

To showcase its full complement of bearing and power transmission services, the BHQ website redesign includes an in-depth Services section. From Electronic Data Interchange to Data Cleansing to Export Services to Technical Support and Training, Bearing Headquarters helps customers streamline management and reduce costs. With the launch of the new website, these customer-oriented services are now globally available.

Other enhancements include a look at BHQ’s five unique machine shop and repair facilities in its Metal Working Shops Division, an overview of its Electrical Products Division, a map of its locations nationwide and a showcase on its home page for current news and updates. All of these enhancements help illustrate why Bearing Headquarters is a premier industrial parts supplier, and how it can be a customer’s one-stop bearing, power transmission and hydraulic components supplier, service and repair company.

Bearing Headquarters Co. is a leading ISO-certified bearing and power transmission components distributor that has been independently owned and operated since 1934. Founded as a single-location bearing distributor in Chicago, the company is now one of the 10 largest Bearing, PT and hydraulics distributors in the United States with more than 30 locations throughout the Midwest and hundreds of additional locations nationwide through their Industrial Buying Consortium (IBC) affiliation. Comprehensive management and training services, on-site repairs, machine shops and an electrical products division make BHQ a full-service, one-stop bearing and power transmission company.
