Your Bearing and Power Transmission Specialists Since 1946
B-R-C Bearing Company was first established in 1946 when Perry Fleagle joined Ray Snyder and Gerald Wright as an equal partner after answering an ad for a salesman who wanted to invest in the company. Since our inception, it has been a privilege to provide customers with high-quality bearings and power transmission parts they need for their application. At B-R-C Bearing Company, we specialize in high-quality bearings, motors, belts, sheaves, chains, sprockets, and much more and carry the best products made by the most trusted manufacturers in the industrial field.
B-R-C Bearing Company has always been a local Wichita tradition. Originally located on Topeka Street, we eventually moved to Central Avenue before transitioning to our current location on Washington in 1958. In addition to our Wichita store, we also have a Salina location and a satellite location for our Dodge City customers. Our company was originally founded as a family operation and remains so to this day. In 1950, Perry Fleagle and Gerald Wright purchased Ray Snyder’s share of the business, and, in 1973, when Gerald passed away, Perry and Marcia Fleagle transitioned to sole owners. Eventually, their son Jim became the majority owner in 2000.
Jim was a proud graduate of Wichita State University and served the company since 1972. Following Perry’s death in 2011, Jim became sole owner of the company and continued to carry on the family tradition of B-R-C Bearing Company with his daughter, Chrissy, and her husband, Brad. The company continued to experience a gradual transition of ownership until 2021 when Chrissy and Brad took over as sole owners following Jim’s eventual passing. Today, Brad and Chrissy continue running the family business and look forward to working with their girls in the future, making B-R-C Bearing Company a fourth-generation family business.
Together with their dedicated staff, B-R-C Bearing Company works hard to provide customers with the superior service and products they deserve. Contact us today and let our family help your family find the parts you need!
