The bearing industry of Guantao County is mainly distributed in Weisengzhai town, Guantao County, which is only one kilometer away from Yandian bearing market, the largest bearing market in China. Guantao, Yandian (Shandong province), and Linxi (Hebei province) have formed a three-pillar pattern of dislocation development of bearing industry. Guantao County is a state-level small and micro bearing production base dominated by light industrial bearing production and processing. At present, there are 117 bearing enterprises in the county, which drives more than 2,000 individually-owned businesses for bearing processing and employs 30,000 people, processing more than 1,000 kinds of bearings of various types. The products occupy more than 60% of the domestic light industrial bearing market, and some products are exported to Europe, Africa, Southeast Asia and other countries and regions.
Hebei Bearing Product Quality Inspection Center has been established. The group standard of "rolling bearing: miniature carbon steel deep groove ball bearing”, which is the only group standard presented by a county-level association, was established here. The formulation of this standard fills the blank of domestic miniature carbon steel bearing standard.
Development strategies: Led by light industry bearing, to develop precision bearing, micro high-speed bearing, introduce upstream material supply and downstream product supporting enterprises. Give full play to the role of the friendship bridge between Hebei and Shandong provinces to accelerate industrial acceptance and the introduction of leading enterprises, ultimately form a light industrial bearing industry cluster.
