The father-son partnership of JJ Martin-Weber & RJ Martin-Weber OA established Consolidated Bearing Company Pty Ltd (CBC) in 1954 when JJ observed a need for industrial supply and services after World War II. In the 1960s CBC expanded beyond NSW’s borders and commenced opening branches in strategic locations to support industry.
Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, demand for bearings and related products accelerated. The company invested in computer technology and in upgrading properties to house the ever-expanding product range, which now included power transmission.
In March 2017, the company, then called Inenco Group, entered a strategic partnership with Genuine Parts Company (GPC) and its subsidiary, Motion Industries. GPC acquired a 35% shareholding in Inenco Group with the option to increase that stake to 100%.
In July 2019, the strategic partnership between Inenco & GPC evolved to a full acquisition. Inenco Group changed its name to Motion Asia Pacific in July 2020. This is the first step towards co-branding Motion Asia Pacific (Motion) with our iconic businesses, including CBC, BSC, SAECOWilson, and Hardy Spicer, and creating one great brand that is here to stay.
PT. CBC Indonesia (PTCBC) is a leading distributor of bearings, power transmission, and associated technical services in Indonesia.
