Who is the World Bearing Association?
Working across cultural and corporate boundaries
WBA is a non-profit and unincorporated industrial association. It was founded in 2006 by three major, regional bearing associations: the American Bearing Manufacturers’ Association (ABMA), the Federation of European Bearing Manufacturers’ Associations (FEBMA) and the Japan Bearing Industrial Association (JBIA).
WBA promotes the common, lawful interests of the world bearing industry, such as open economic engagement, sustainable development and the protection of legal rights of companies.
Promotion of the common lawful interests of the world bearing industry
WBA has created an Anti-Counterfeiting Committee. This Committee is dedicated to addressing the counterfeiting of premium brand bearings and to assisting law enforcement agents in the identification and eradication of counterfeiting.
The WBA and its participating companies take action and arrange informational campaigns, such as this, to raise awareness about counterfeiting. This helps buyers, end users and distributors.
