About King Engine Bearings

About King BearingsFounded in 1960, King Engine Bearings is a world-class developer and manufacturer of engine bearings for automobiles, light to heavy-duty trucks, marine, aviation, standby power and other types of internal combustion engines. King’s only product is engine bearings. As a result of its specialization and focus, the company is recognized for producing the highest quality engine bearings available in the market today.

The King line includes OEM replacement rod, main, cam bearings, and thrust washers and its special range of high performance bearings. King’s extensive coverage of domestic and import engine bearings ship from its main distribution center in Cedar Grove, N.J. and 11 strategically located factory branch warehouses.

Through the years, King has developed and maintained a philosophy of constant improvement, from bearing design and engineering to customer service. The company is a certified TS16949 (automotive) and AS9100 (aerospace) manufacturer, producing to the highest statistical quality control standards.



Each product begins with a strong investment in research and development. Our fully staffed R&D department is dedicated to developing the best materials, improving product tolerances, and extending the service life of engine bearings under all operating conditions.


Using cutting-edge materials and methodologies isn’t enough by itself; you need to make sure they will work optimally under real-world conditions. Our in-house engineering and application simulation technology enables us to optimize engine bearing performance for your vehicle and driving conditions.


We don’t just talk quality, we prove it. Our company has earned the highest certifications in our industries. TS and AS certifications recognize our focus and commitment to producing bearings with consistent quality and the tightest dimensional tolerances.


There’s nothing more accurate than a perfect Bull’s Eye. That’s why nothing less than Bull’s Eye Tolerances will do. We’ve removed the inconsistencies that plague other manufacturers by employing advanced quality control procedures to maintain rod and main bearing wall thickness tolerances at an amazingly tight ±0.00010′.


Technology never sleeps…and that means manufacturers need to stay on top of changing needs. Our proprietary, high-speed, fully automated production lines enable us to quickly tool and produce new products that meet the demands of whatever you’re driving today.
