Throughout our growth, Weimer's commitment to total quality has been steadfast. In 1994, Weimer Bearing & Transmission achieved ISO certification, has subsequently been recertified every year since, and in 2018 we became certified in the new standard, ISO 9001:2015.
Weimer's commitment to quality in employees has never wavered. Always looking to the future, the company continues to recruit, hire and train the very best and most qualified employees in the industry. Our management team continues to be actively involved in the day-to-day operations of the company, with service to customers and employees, and support of our valued supplier partners being our top priorities.
With the massive consolidation in the power transmission distribution industry, Weimer Bearing is positioned today as one of the last privately-held and consistently family-owned business of its type. To maintain this position, we've steadily added new and innovative products to our offering, as well as new locations. Weimer is now heavily involved in motion control, pneumatic and linear products, electrical and electronic systems, along with specialty packaging, manufacturing and other customized industrial services. We have also expanded into other geographies, with branches in Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa and South Carolina. As a founding member of the Independent Distributor's Cooperative (IDC-1988), Weimer has 2 national distribution centers in Indianapolis and Reno with the full buying power and recognition as the 3rd largest power transmission distribution entity in the United States, while still retaining family ownership and local flexibility -- both key attributes to properly servicing both OEM and MRO industrial customers.
