Emerson Bearing Provides Bearings for the World's Tallest Building

BOSTON, MA — Emerson Bearing, a Boston based bearing company catering to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) markets throughout the world now supplies bearings and related products for the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa (http://www.burjkhalifa.ae/language/en-us/home.aspx), that "vertical odyssey" that is the centerpiece of downtown Dubai.

This magnificent record-setting Tower stands at 2,716.5 feet and is more than 160 stories. It has broken records for the tallest structure and tallest free-standing structure in the world and houses the elevator with the longest travel distance in the world.

Emerson Bearing Boston was contracted to provide bearing and belt spare parts to one of Dubai's established industry supply houses serving the Tower. Emerson Bearing Boston was selected on the basis of their vast inventory of bearings, fixed price program and 24/7 service. The majority of bearings and spare parts required are for maintenance and repair of the Tower's 57 elevators and eight escalators. Emerson Bearing Boston will also supply bearings and related products for the water tanks, pumps and air-handling units, as well as building maintenance track mounted units and jib arms.

"Ensuring that the world's tallest building is kept in tip-top shape is a job of some magnitude and we're honored to play a role in that," said Steve Katz, president of Emerson Bearing. "We have the inventory on hand and the quick turnaround that is critical to their operations."
