Mill Log Marine Partnership with Thordon Bearings

Thursday, October 06, 2011

Mill Log Marine announces Thordon Bearings components are now available in British Columbia.

 

Mill Log Marine, Burnaby, BC (www.milllog.com) announced that Thordon Bearings Inc. (www.thordonbearings.com) has collaborated with its Burnaby, BC distributorship to represent Thordon’s environmentally friendly state-of-the-art polymer products in Western Canada. “Mill Log Marine’s reputation, expertise and knowledge of the marine market gives us great confidence in knowing that our products will be strongly supported in western Canada”, added Axel Swanson, Technical Sales Representative, Thordon Bearings Inc. “By partnering with Mill Log Marine, we can now offer our British Columbia customers the highest quality, most environmentally friendly bearing solution in the workboat market today.”


Don Lindsey, Director of Sales & Marketing for Mill Log Marine stated, “Thordon Bearings produces high quality, water lubricated rudder and shaft bearings specifically for the workboat market, which lasts much longer than traditional bearings.” “With working applications in extreme operating conditions being used by the U.S. and Canadian Navies, and workboat companies across the globe, we are excited to bring these bearings to the sediment-heavy Fraser River.” “Furthermore, this product eliminates the need for petroleum-based products for lubrication, which helps the environment and decreases operating costs.” Thordon Bearings Inc. is a 100-year old, family-owned company that produces a complete range of high performance, non-metallic journal bearing solutions for marine, pump, hydro-turbine, offshore oil and other industrial markets. These innovative water lubricated bearing solutions are environmentally friendly and outperform the common “cutlass” type bearings on the market today. Thordon Bearings Inc. is a global organization with local British Columbia customers such as BC Ferries, BC Hydro and the Canadian Coast Guard, to name a few.


Mill Log Equipment Company, based in Coburg, Oregon, with North American operations in Burnaby, British Columbia; Kent, Washington; and, Edmonton, Alberta, is a heavy-duty transmission and component supplier to the marine and industrial markets offering a complete line of Twin Disc off-highway power transmission equipment, including marine transmissions, electronic controls, as well as steering and propulsion systems.
