Taking the First Steps

The Rollway® brand has a long and distinguished history. In 1908 when trolley car 764 first rolled down the tracks of the Syracuse Rapid Transit Line in Syracuse, New York, USA it carried with it a new product that would eventually set the stage for a century of innovation. That drive through the streets of Syracuse marked the first time that bearings from the Railway Roller Bearing Company had been installed and tested. Throughout the early part of the 20th century, the fledgling company flourished and started producing general-purpose roller bearings for heavy-duty equipment used in steel, pulp and paper mills. The company also began manufacturing a new line of straight cylindrical roller bearings. In 1923, the firm changed its name, to Rollway Roller Bearing Company, and expanded its offerings even further, with the introduction of a line of automotive roller bearings.

That product-line expansion continued the second half of the previous century and into the 21st century, as Rollway developed and delivered new products – and new solutions – to meet the demands of industries and applications as diverse as oil and gas, material handling, steel mills, agriculture, construction and mining. Today, Regal provides businesses and industries around the world with more than 7.000 different types of Rollway spherical, cylindrical and tapered roller bearings, ball bearings, and extra-large radial and thrust bearings. The Rollway bearings line originally produced only in Syracuse, New York, is now manufactured in multiple Regal facilities around the globe.

Strengthening Our Innovative Spirit

In 1996, the Rollway brand found a perfect match for the innovation that it represents: Emerson Power Transmission, a part of Emerson Industrial Automation, a world leader in the production of mechanical power transmission drives, bearings and components.

In 2015 Regal acquired Emerson’s Power Transmission business unit, including the Rollway brand other PTS brands, including McGill®, Sealmaster®, Browning®, Jaure®, KopFlex®, Morse® and System Plast®. Backed by extraordinary technological capabilities and resources, Regal delivers customized and competitively valuable solutions that meet the unique needs of each of its customers.

Today, Regal supplies a variety of power transmission products and components under a family of fifteen respected brands, including Rollway®, that represent time-tested reliability and proven performance results. These products are designed to increase both uptime and productivity.


In addition to premier quality products, Regal offers superior technical support and an outstanding customer tailored logistic operation. The global sales, marketing, customer service and distribution center for Rollway products is located in Belgium. A benefit of the central location in Europe close to the seaport of Antwerp and the national airport of Brussels is that transit times for sea and air shipments are minimized.

Regal is committed to the Rollway brand’s tradition od innovation. As the Rollway brand enters its second century, it remains synonymous with precision and quality craftsmanship. Rollway products continue to set industry standards for performance and are well positioned to continue to do so for the next 100 years.
