A family run business

With roots firmly in the Midlands, the Handley family has been shaping the bearings industry since the mid-1920s. Three generations later, the granddaughter of the late John Handley (Snr), daughter of John Handley (Jr), is at the helm – delivering with integrity the exacting standards which have formed the foundation of the business for over 50 years.
