We have an excellent manufacturing facility.
We have been manufacturing new bearings since 1920, beginning in San Francisco, California, and radial and thrust bearings for power generation OEMs for 60 years. By 1990 we began to transition the business to the Southeastern U.S., so that today all manufacturing activity occurs in our well equipped, modern plant near Charlotte, North Carolina. We maintain 35,000 square feet (3,251 m2) under roof. We bought the land and designed and built the plant to be what it is today: a state-of-the-art, special-purpose facility devoted to one specialty – fluid film bearings.
And that’s where we perform our highly regarded repair services, regularly serving the demanding needs of end users and the field service engineers of Siemens, Alstom Power and other OEMs under the gun 24×7 to serve their utility customers. This means when you send damaged bearings to Pioneer, you’re trusting a bearing design and manufacturing company to perform aftermarket services of the same high caliber our OEM customers expect of us in satisfying their orders for new bearings.
