BCA has over a century of experience supplying wheel end solutions in the USA. Today BCA is owned by NTN, a global manufacturer of wheel hub assemblies and bearings.
“NTN has an advantage in manufacturing hub assemblies and bearings due to our global footprint and our domestic capacity,” said Elena Pismennaya, market manager, Automotive Aftermarket. “We are leveraging this production and manufacturing expertise to provide our aftermarket partners with a full-line of OE-quality, premium product offering.”
According to the company, as the #1 supplier of OE-quality hub assemblies, NTN satisfies more than 30% of the demand for North American OE vehicle production from NTN’s Elgin, Ill., plant. The Elgin plant is the largest manufacturer of hub assemblies in North America, providing more product to OEMs and the Aftermarket than any other single facility. This gives BCA the benefit in the Aftermarket of supplying highly-engineered replacement parts that meet or exceed OE engineering specifications.
The Elgin, Ill., plant totals 670,000 square feet, has 36 high-volume automated assembly lines and employs a highly skilled workforce of more than 650 people.
