Own VBB brand

VBB, Blässinger’s own brand

Josef Blässinger GmbH + Co KG has been having selected rolling bearings produced in China under its own VBB brand since 2001. The VBB brand was then officially registered and protected as a trademark in 2011.

Since then, the portfolio has been steadily expanded and we are now able to offer not only products from the field of rolling bearings and plain bearings as well as from the fields of linear technology, drive technology, procurement items and much, much more.

Our VBB brand products are exclusively produced by selected and certified manufacturers according to DIN standards, so we can supply all products in the desired quality.
We currently offer two quality grades: VBB (standard) and VBB Premium.

We differentiate between two qualities

VVB (standard)

Our VBB quality grade is produced exclusively in plants that are at least ISO 9001 certified and of course all VBB products also comply with DIN 625 and DIN 620 and impress with consistent quality at a competitive price. Thanks to our many years of experience, we are able to adapt our products precisely to meet individual customer requirements, giving our customers an important competitive advantage.

VBB Premium

Due to the high demands on our VBB Premium quality grade, these products are only produced in factories which we have specially approved. VBB Premium products are manufactured and tested to the highest standards and according to the state of the art – right through from the materials used to the packaging. Nearly all customer requests of a constructive nature and for documentation can be fulfilled. With the VBB Premium quality grade we offer our customers an enormous price advantage combined with top quality.
