Thordon unveils new bearing information Web portal

(BURLINGTON, Ontario) — Thordon Bearings has unveiled a new Web-based platform to provide all the information industry professionals need to know about the commercial, technical and environmental features of grease-free and water-lubricated polymer bearings across a wide variety of applications.

Covering all of Thordon’s target market sectors, the new website has been designed to provide shipowners, shipyards and propulsion system integrators, in particular, with the information they need to make more informed procurement decisions, especially with regard to water-lubricated propeller shafts.

“Rather than redesigning a website simply to promote Thordon products, we wanted to provide an information portal for our existing and potential customers, whether they operate in the maritime space, hydro-power or land-based industrial sectors," said Craig Carter, director of marketing and customer service. “Visitors to are able to hone in on the sectors relevant to their operations. For instance, maritime customers can find out about the Thordon solutions specific to the naval, commercial, leisure and workboat segments, download technical papers, design and engineering manuals and view a number of ‘how it works’ videos.”

Other areas of the portal include details of Thordon distributors and service agents, allowing customer to reach out directly to region specific resources for more information.

“There is growing interest in our high-performance polymer bearing systems. This new information portal will allow those considering the move away from traditional bearing materials to better understand the cost-savings such systems can afford,” said Carter.
