Quality is an essential element of our service and is applied to every stage of the business.
All Barden ball bearings can meet ISO P4/P2 (ABEC 7/9) measures if specified and will usually exceed them. However many other factors affecting ball bearing performance which are not covered by ISO/ABEC standards are also addressed. The company applies self-established standards and uses a number of proprietary test and measuring equipment to ensure quiet, smooth-running ball bearings that perform exceptionally well are produced every time.
Our facilities are certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 and ISO 50001. The company has also received numerous awards and accolades from both customers and suppliers. Full traceability can be offered on Barden aerospace bearings and the plant is certified to aerospace standards AS9100 and AS9120.
Investment in people and training is important to us. Since the company was established, we have regularly recruited engineering apprentices and the company is actively involved in encouraging more school-leavers into engineering careers. Our commitment to our people has also been rewarded by a National Investors in People award and our quality initiatives involve every member of staff with the aim of achieving zero defects across all aspects of manufacturing and service.
