Price Match

We pride ourselves on offering the most competitive prices in our niche and are confident that we cannot be beaten in affordability. However, should you find that one of our competitors (in Malawi) is offering the same products at a lower cost, please let us know and we will happily match or beat the price.

All you need to do is email or fax the advertised price to us. In order for us to offer a better price, the product must be identical (same brand, genuine), in stock and available for immediate delivery for single unit purchases only. The price match is not available for products on orders that have already been placed or received.

"Service. That's really our business. And service is what got us going."

Always Meeting customers needs has been Bearing Centre’s motto from the very beginning. The aim remains to never have a customer leave Bearing Centre without a part in hand. In 1976, company founder A.R. Ismail opened Bearing Centre’s doors in the heart of the city. He delivered the first bearing to a customer who had not yet hung up the phone from placing the order. With limited knowledge and experience, Ismail knew that this was the gap in the industrial market and he knew that various operations required these supplies and the trend was set. Over the years , Ismail built a vast wealth of knowledge and experience in the field that is unmatched and to this day Bearing Centre’s commitment to satisfying customers needs continues. Bearing Centre was founded to serve the industrial community on the basis that the “customer’s wants must come first”.

Over the years, this attitude has enabled our brand to grow and expand throughout the region. As the engineering industry grew, so did Bearing Centre. Known as a leading industrial distributor, whose focus is to provide quick delivery through an immense range of high quality international products. Furthermore, we introduced new lines, state-of-the-art technology and continue to provide a one to one service to our customers.

Bearing Centre’s constant evolution is a reflection of our customer’s needs and our eagerness to meet them by adapting.

Forty years ago, in 1976, my father started to pursue his goals to be a single-source supplier for different industries. His determination and hard work was always evident and it was not unusual for him to supply his customers outside business hours and make the customers needs happen, even if he didn’t always have the supplies at the time. It was no surprise to hear him say, “no problem, we’ll order a 100!” to make sure the needs of the companies he served were met.

This ambition and hard work has paved the foundation of where Bearing Centre is today. My father’s philosophy has withstood time and we firmly believe in meeting the customer’s needs with an inventory of over forty thousand quality engineering products.

At Bearing Centre, we bear you in mind and keep you moving, by supplying quality-engineering products. Therefore you can always count on us as a one stop technical solution provider. Though we are based in Blantyre, no place in Malawi is too far to provide the support and supplies you need to keep your production operating efficiently.
