Throughout 2012 Scheerer Bearing Corporation has been engaged in a pattern of extensive growth that includes an additional manufacturing plant, and new headquarters, warehouse and employees.
The expansion became necessary due to the increased demand for Scheerer products straining production and office capacity. To satisfy the need, Scheerer Bearing moved and expanded their corporate office, warehouse and assembly operations, as well as the manufacturing of bearing products over 25 inches in diameter to its new facility at 645 Davisville Road, Willow Grove, PA. Scheerer’s bearing products less than 25 inches in diameter will continue to be produced at their Horsham, PA locations.
Scheerer Bearing’s capability to provide customers with a full range of quality ball, tapered, spherical and cylindrical bearings has grown, while their new building allows Scheerer to continue to offer their specialty: large-size standard and custom bearings.
"Customer service is our top of mind. Every bearing we manufacture is held to the highest industry standards and tested with the latest industry technology," said George Rymar, Scheerer Bearing CEO. "Our new building allows us the space to increase our capacity and grow with new technology as it becomes available."
The larger space at Scheerer Bearing includes meeting areas and conference rooms that can comfortably accommodate large groups for employee training and enrichment such as safety committee, technical training, and benefits meetings.
Along with the square footage growth that Scheerer has experienced, there’s been an increase in staff as well. New manufacturing and administrative positions have been added in 2012.
Augmenting those positions are engineering and accounting interns from local universities who represent Scheerer’s commitment to education and training.
"Participating in internship programs with local colleges and universities allows us to give back to the community," said Mr. Rymar. "Providing hands-on training to the next generation allows us to share our manufacturing success with students who are eager to learn."
