Vision

ABMA’s vision is to be the premier national association and voice of the American bearing industry.


Mission


ABMA’s mission is to provide leadership, advocacy and education with a focus on membership value, industry outreach and issues impacting the global bearing industry.


Origins


ABMA began in 1917 as an informal committee to aid production of bearings during World War I. The committee consisted of Andrew Company, New Departure, Nice, Federal, Fafnir, SKF, Norma, BCA, Marlin Rockwell and Atlas Ball. In 1933, articles of association were established for Anti-Friction Bearing Manufacturers Association (AFBMA).


ABMA Today


The association is managed by the Board of Directors. Members also serve on five standing committees. A full-time staff of professionals is headquartered in Washington, DC to support the Association’s activities.
