Who we are...

Bearings & Spares is a member of the Iceman Group of Companies, Sri Lanka’s market leader in providing temperature-controlled goods transportation for vehicles.

The early years...

We had a humble begining in 1989 with a staff of only 2 and a stock value of US$200, distributing SKF Bearings in the Kandana, Ja-ela and Katunayaka areas.

Slowly but steadily we began to expand our operations from 1990 onwards. Each successive year we achieved a significant growth which was higher than the overall market growth in Sri Lanka.

Up to the year 2007 we were the area distributor for SKF Bearings. During this period we achieved a remarkable growth in sales volume while accumulating a steady clientele numbering over 100. As a result, our performance was rated very highly by SKF International.

On several occasions we were selected as the best SKF Bearings distributor in Sri Lanka in recognition of our achievements. What’s more, we have even received international recognition for our performance.

A forward leap...

In 2007 we began a new strategic alliance when SNR of France selected us as their National Distributor. SNR Bearings is the number one bearing brand in Europe in terms of quantity. Recently, SNR Bearings merged with NTN Bearings and presumably is now the number one bearing brand in the world.

Our Vision
