“In the year following our acquisition, I’ve been impressed by the synergies between GRW and Kaman. Our cultures are both aligned around continuous innovation and outstanding client service.” Reinhard Goebel

Our acquisition of GRW Bearing GmbH, a German-based designer and manufacturer of super-precision miniature ball bearings, exemplifies our strategic approach to global expansion. Acquired in 2015, GRW is focused on the demanding applications segment of the miniature ball bearings market, where low noise requirements, extreme temperatures, ultra-high speeds, and/or caustic environments require both exceptional engineering design and continuous operating performance capabilities. The company represents an outstanding complement to our own market-leading specialty bearings and engineered product lines. Like Kaman, GRW is focused on solving the toughest problems of OEM customers and achieving the highest standards of performance in the most demanding applications. The combined companies will enable us to drive significant synergies through both operational efficiencies and additional sales growth.
