Glen Ellyn, IL—When attendees at the Bearing Specialists Association (BSA) 2013 Annual Convention convene for the business program on Sunday, May 5th they will begin with the BSA Update presented by Jack Simpson, Director-Product Mgmt. Bearings & Seals of Applied Industrial Technologies and BSA Vice President.

Distributors and manufacturers are strongly encouraged to attend these sessions which offer the kind of “insider look” at the industry only BSA can deliver.
BSA is the “must belong to organization for authorized bearing distributors.” An international service and educational organization of distributors representing a total of almost 100 companies distributing factory-warranted, anti-friction bearings and invited manufacturers of bearings and related products, the association’s mission says, “BSA is the forum to enhance networking and knowledge sharing and promote the sale of bearings through authorized distributors.” For more information on BSA, contact the BSA office at (630) 858-3838; fax (630) 790-3095; email [email protected] or visit the association website at www.bsahome.org. ###
