One of the key reasons for Daniel Hallauer, CEO of SBS, to set foot in Singapore to build up the Company was the immense strength in the city’s Off-Shore and Marine Industry. Back in 2005, Singapore was one of the three major hubs in the world next to Aberdeen and Houston. And today, it is still the centre of know-how and fabrication for Jack Up Rigs in the world. Hence, many of the worldwide leading Off-shore machinery companies have/ had their offices set up in the Lion City.
Having numerous proven track records, SBS became a trusted one-stop solution for plain bearings, wear plates and spherical plain bearings, which are maintenance-free and corrosion-free. Over the last 15 years, with SBS being able to gain access to the shipyards and conducting inspections of old equipment that was due for overhaul, we were able to identify which bearing materials, bearing hinge designs and counter surfaces really stood the test of time – including the inferior ones which did not perform. This had enhanced our knowledge and experience for this extraordinary demanding industry that is growing rapidly.
SBS’s COM-KU®/D and LUB-MET® are the two most widely used materials for this industry. However, we also provide engineering solutions for your most demanding applications that require a different approach to material and technical design. SBS is your one-stop solution for you!
SBS also carries a wide variety of certified Rudder Bearings raw material tubes for immediate supply.
