BI set to add ContiTech belts to its range
Bearings International (BI) is set to add to its basket of premium brands following a visit by the ContiTech Power Transmission Group to discuss a local distribution agreement for its belt ranges. These are designed to minimise vibration and belt whip, especially in heavy-duty shock-load applications. The banded or joined construction prevents rollover and reduces vibration tendencies. Productivity is maximised by eliminating groove mismatch or belt turnover problems, which are common on drives with a combination of long belt spans and/or pulsating loads.
ContiTech also manufactures specialty belts for constant speed delivery and excellent rigidity, while retaining flexibility and strong gripping traction. Power transmission belts are supplied in traditional, classic, and narrow-profile V-belt forms, with particular attention paid to features such as total lifetime cost, quiet running, and increased efficiency.

Karl Weindinger, general manager sales for Western Europe and Africa, recently paid a visit to BI’s Johannesburg head office to commence discussing the details of the potential distributorship. “As a global belt manufacturer, we rely on key partners to import and distribute our products,” he explained. “We are excited at the prospect of strengthening our cooperation with the BI family, which represents some of the top global brands.”
Weindinger emphasised that BI’s centralised warehouse, well-established customer base in a range of industries, technical expertise, and a full product range, make it an ideal partner for ContiTech.
Brian Tillie, BI chain and belt transmission drives product manager, added that the tie-up will allow the company to diversify even further into additional market sectors, as well as boost the credibility of its premium product focus.
“The main features of ContiTech’s products are their long life and guaranteed performance, in addition to the low total cost of ownership,” concluded BI marketing manager, Victor Strobel. “This is increasingly important to our industrial clients where costly downtime can be minimised by using quality products.”
