Paving the way for progress and performance in the construction industry.

Heavy equipment is a necessity for every road and bridge-construction project. When industry giants such as Caterpillar and John Deere trust NTN for their bearings, shouldn’t you?


NTN bearings can be found in all types of construction equipment, including cranes, hydraulic excavators, asphalt pavers, motor graders, wheel loaders, and off-highway trucks, as well as many other types of heavy equipment used in building projects. NTN‘s diverse product line supports building-equipment repair needs with high-quality bearing products that include:

  • Tapered roller bearings
  • Cylindrical roller bearings
  • Crown blocks
  • Spherical roller bearings
  • Ball bearings
  • Slewing ring bearings


NTN’s Macomb, IL facility was built in 1965 to support the construction industry.


Its central location in western Illinois was chosen for its proximity to major construction equipment manufacturers. Our long tradition of serving the construction industry gives us a unique understanding of the specific demands of the working environment. This understanding has led to many technical innovations in bearing design, such as special surface finishes to increase lubrication effectiveness and heat treatments that extend bearing life.
