Alpine Bearing’s Boston Facility Earns ISO 9001: 2015 Certification

Boston Bearing Distributor Earns ISO 9001

Alpine Bearing, the distributor with the largest inventory of bearings in the U.S., has earned its ISO 9001: 2015 certification.

Recently, the NSF, the international accreditation body, audited Alpine Bearing to gauge the efficiency of its systems and processes, continuous improvement practices, and customer satisfaction efforts and found the company is successfully instituting systems and consistently improving them.


Auditors measured product conformance, customer satisfaction, adherence to established standards, and strategic planning. The accreditation body noted that Alpine shows employee accountability, ownership, and empowerment leading to increased customer satisfaction.

“This certification validates our long-held belief that providing our customers with bearings from trusted brands and charging reasonable prices is the only way to go,” said Jim Levin, president of Alpine Bearing. “It’s how my father, who founded the company, did business and we still work that way.”

ISO 9001: 2015 certification denotes a company’s ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer, statutory, and regulatory requirements, while enhancing customer satisfaction. It also evaluates processes for system improvement and assures product conformity.

In other words, when you need to find the right bearings for your application, you can be confident that Alpine has the inventory, the knowledge, and the procedures to get them to you quickly and correctly.
