Be it for the furniture or cosmetics industry, electrotechnology or mechanical engineering, together with our trading partners KGM Fulda and KGM Precision Products Co., Ltd. Kunshan (China), ballcenter from Neuhof near Fulda, Germany, are your expert, cost-efficient ball stockist.
In focus: precision balls made from a wide range of materials such as steel, plastics or glass, customized balls and polishing media or abrasives that are efficiently procured and tested for quality on site in China as well as in our ball laboratory in Neuhof.
As an affiliate company of the venerable KGM Kugelfabrik GmbH & Co. KG from Fulda, we are able to rely on vast experience.
Nationwide and throughout Europe, we currently make over 400 customers happy with our ball bearings.
We are enlarging our location in Neuhof, Germany – the new addition will give us 470 square metres more space distributed across 1.5 floors. The new addition will be used as supplementary storage space and for our Quality assurance and Sorting departments. The paths to and from the individual departments will be significantly shorter. The building is planned for completion at the beginning of 2022. Our employees and our customers will benefit equally from the addition.
Advantages for customers
At last: at the beginning of January 2020 ballcenter was officially certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001:2015. With this certification, the ball bearing experts clearly emphasised that they do not only place value on ball bearing quality on the outside. Company management and the employees make sure that the internal business processes are as transparent, traceable and efficient as possible.
What certification means
The company is expanding and needs more space. The removal to the Neuhof-Nord near Fulda industrial park primarily benefited our customers: the central location offers enough room for an in-house laboratory. Now our employees conduct quality control directly on site. Due to the good infrastructure and a direct motorway ramp to the A66, the balls for bearings and valves make their way to our customers more quickly. Further, the location in Neuhof is large enough to accommodate an expansion of our warehouse.
Advantages for customers
After KGM Kugelfabrik opened a factory in Kunshan in 2012 and judged it as a success, ballcenter established another factory in China in 2018: KGM Precision Products Co., Ltd. The factory in Kunshan is certified in accordance with German requirements and meets ballcenter quality standards. It is the base from which we continually develop our supplier network. In this factory, the ball bearings produced in China are inspected before they are transported to Germany.
Why a factory in China?
ballcenter Handelsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG was established as a stand-along company, spun off from KGM Kugelfabrik GmbH & Co. KG in Fulda, Germany. Two years later, ballcenter started doing business and first took on the tasks of warehousing, logistics and customer service.
