Purvis Bearing Service is the original business unit of Purvis Industries and has its roots in bearing and power transmission. Through Purvis Bearing Service, we stock and support many key mechanical product brands and families.
Almost all core mechanical power transmission and bearing products are stocked at each of our Purvis Industries branches. We strive to keep at least 80% of our inventory at our local stores, not stuck in a distribution center hundreds of miles away (where it may as well be in stock at the manufacturer!).

And many other product groups!
Bearings - We typically stock housed units (2-bolt & 4-bolt flanges, pillow blocks, and take-up units) in both ball bearing and roller bearing configurations. We also have unmounted bearings with many different rolling elements - ball, roller (cylindrical, spherical, and tapered), needle bearings, and cam followers and yoke rollers.
Belts, Sheaves, & Pulleys - Our branches maintain a wide variety of v-belts, in all standard cross-sections (A, B, C, 3VX, 5VX), along with all the corresponding pulleys in standard sizes and bores, both straight bore and bushing styles. We also carry synchronous belts and, in many cases, the corresponding pulleys.
Chains & Sprockets - Our typical inventory consists of single- and double-pitch chains, in all sizes, up to 200 (depending on branch). We stock heavy wall chains in sizes up to 100. We carry all of the accessories you need - half links, roller links, and connecting links - on the shelf! Every branch has sprockets to match the chains they have in inventory, both bore-to-size and bushing style.
Couplings - We offer jaw, chain, grid, and elastomeric couplings. Our inventory contains a wide variety of bores to match any application. All our branches tailor their stock independently to service their local markets. If your branch does not have your specific size, odds are another branch does!
Bushings - We stock bronze bushings as a standard, as well as QD and taper-lock bushings.
Adhesives, Sealants, & Lubricants - All branches carry thread lock, bearing retaining compound, gasket sealants, grease guns and grease tubes, and corresponding accessories. Some branches also carry five-gallon buckets of gear oil and hydraulic fluid.
Seals & Gaskets - Shaft seals and O-rings are standard inventory for every branch. Many branches also carry mechanical seals.
Gears, Gearboxes, & Gearmotors - We keep a large variety of shaft mount gearboxes throughout our locations. In addition to gearboxes, we stock bushings and accessories for conveyor drives (faces and shafts). We sell small gearsets in helical bevel and helical worm configurations. Our Dallas branch has a custom gearbox assembly center for inline concentric reducers and even stocks a size 12 shaft mount gearbox!
Keyed, Stepped, & Custom Shafting - Each branch carries a wide variety of shafting diameters and lengths. Most branches carry keyed shafts, but some locations have keyless shafts. We are available to make custom shafting, whether it has multiple steps, irregular key and diameter dimensions, drilled and tapped end faces, or unique materials. We also carry a full range of key stock at most branches.
Purvis Bearing Service maintains the product knowledge and application experience for which we have always been known. Our goal is to be known as the most technically proficient distributor in the market, which is why we train constantly. Combining more than 75 years of industry mastery with updated practices positions Purvis to live up to the promise our founder, George Purvis, made: “Purvis for Service!”
