Whether it’s conveyor or drive technology, mechanical and plant engineering, pumps and compressors, automotive and agricultural technology, or the sports and leisure sectors – all industries around the globe value LFD’s high quality bearings, manufactured according to German standards.


100 million deep groove ball bearings per year, produced on automized production lines, represent LFD’s core business. Our new German production site for taper and cylindrical roller bearings allows for maximum control of quality requirements. The individual components are tested with optical and tactile measuring devices. Our product portfolio also includes LFD spherical roller bearings, LFD spherical plain bearings, and LFD bearing units.


The LFD development laboratory based at our headquarters in Dortmund is equipped with stateof-the-art measuring technologies, providing us with the capacity to efficiently document new developments for our clients and to promptly implement optimizations.

LFD bearings are designed to cover a wide range of applications already in their standard version. Our engineering team acts as advisor and collaborates closely with the customer during the design stage. That way, our bearings are directly adapted to the particular operating conditions – an additional cost advantage for LFD clients.


Founded in 1978, the LFD Group is a family business operating on a worldwide scale. Our team of professionals in engineering, production, management, sales and logistics provides LFD clients with the right solutions for all of their requirements. We are continuously expanding our service range and advancing specific concepts for a variety of industries, while pursuing a positive environmental performance.

The individual requirements dictate the design of LFD bearings. Service life, noise level, maintenance-free operation – LFD meticulously implements your distinctive specifications. In doing so, we always keep in mind the established budget.

LFD can specifically factor in particular operating conditions, such as very high or very low temperatures, speeds, or forces.


Having our own automized production lines guarantees bearings of consistently high quality. The LFD Group strives to provide clients in all sectors with optimum bearings. All of our products are manufactured in accordance with DIN standards or your specific requirements.

Our quality management system takes effect already at the steel works. The particularly high quality of the bearing steel provides the basis: a remarkable degree of purity guarantees, among other things, high utilization levels and therefore long service life. All procurement for our in-house factories is subject to strict requirements. Within the LFD Group, quality management according to German DIN standards is used as a matter of course in all lines of production. As a result, LFD bearings are exceptionally resistant, even under extremely harsh conditions.


In addition to the central warehouse in Germany, the LFD Group also maintains storage facilities in the USA, Chile, Italy, and China. Our international presence with offices worldwide ensures fast response and delivery times for LFD customers.

Powerful partners in logistics with subsidiaries around the globe provide further benefits – close proximity to our customers is a priority for us.
