Company history

Our origins date back to 1968, when two family-owned companies in the automotive industry merged to create A&S Fersa, leading later on to the establishment of Fersa Bearings.

The high standards, proven quality and modernization of our production processes, as well as our continued investment in R&D, have enabled us to become a supplier to the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and to the largest Tier One driveline and transmission manufacturers. This fact has helped us to position our brand among the leading brands in the aftermarket.

Fersa's international presence is growing every day, reaching more than 85 countries. Our extensive global distribution network, as well as the presence of our own manufacturing centers, and engineering and sales offices in strategic markets, have enabled the Fersa brand to continue growing worldwide.
