Eastern Industrial Automation offers more than just tier-one branded products, superb services and a stellar staff. We offer a can-do, will-do mindset.

From our beginnings in 1963, when founder Richard Gorsey began personally delivering mechanical components to textile mills throughout New England, our can-do mindset has focused on saving our customers time and money. Many years later, Richard Gorsey and his son-in-law, Geoff Filker, oversee Eastern Industrial Automation, formerly known as Eastern Bearings, Inc. Today, we represent more than 1,000 leading global manufacturers and supply more than 1,000,000 specific products to our customers worldwide - with the same detailed attention to service as when we began.

Our will-do mindset keeps us alert for new ways to expand services to our customers. When many companies scaled back, we leapt into the global economy by creating a subsidiary company in China, Shanghai Motion Control Technology Co. Ltd., (MCT),which helps our North American customers import and export various components and specialty products.

We have grown exponentially beyond just selling top quality machinery parts. Eastern Industrial Automation offers an industry-leading portfolio of local (in-house) application, engineering, maintenance services and procurement solutions that provide bottom-line results to our vast number of OEM and MRO partners.

Our business partners, many of whom are represented on this website, are vital to our success, and we are grateful. Their deep reservoirs of technical knowledge and expertise are behind every product we sell. Working together, we provide our customers with solutions for every mechanical, electrical or pneumatic manufacturing situation that arises.

From our beginnings as a one-man, one-town distributorship yesterday to our global operations today, our can-do/will-do mindset has always been the same: to earn our customers - business by providing more than just "business as usual." Our job is to keep our customers' production equipment operating at peak efficiency for maximum productivity and profitability. We are proud to be an integral part of producing the goods our world uses every day.
