Bearings and Drives is the oldest and the original B&D Industrial company. John Nations, one of the founders of Bearings and Drives, grew up working in his father’s sawmill business in Senoia, Georgia during the Great Depression. His first job was with Pye Barker Supply in Atlanta. In 1947, he opened Bearings and Drives after purchasing a small Griffin business for $9,000. Nations relocated the business in 1950 to Macon, Georgia, which remains the corporate headquarters today. The first branch outside of Macon was opened in Atlanta in 1956. Andy Nations became president of Bearings and Drives in 1983, and John Nations served as Chairman of the Board until he passed away in 2006.

Over the years, the company has grown into a multi-state corporation with branches all over the Southeastern USA. Today, Bearings and Drives is the largest independently owned distributor that sells and services industrial bearings and power transmission equipment in the region, and it consistently ranks among the largest industrial distributors in the United States. Bearings and Drives’ product line has expanded to include electrical drives and controls, fluid power equipment, and conveyor systems.

The company features multiple branches spread out over five states, in order to provide in-stock products with inventories customized to local industries. While they do maintain a large distribution center in Macon, Georgia, striving to keep critical parts as close to your plant as possible to avoid emergency situations.
