Accreditation and Quality

Committed to producing the best quality bearings possible

Accreditation and Quality


Exalto UK is ISO9001:2015 accredited meaning we adhere to international standards in structure, content and implementation of our quality management system.

All bearings are tested to the highest standards in-house. We have a full time quality technician whose responsibility it is to check all outgoing orders in terms of machining quality, size within tolerance and presentation. We have international pump customers that have been working with us 16 years which is testament to the quality of the products we supply.

We have always been committed to producing the best quality bearings possible and in 2008 invested in an audit from independent consulting firm, IDEA Heavy Equipment. Tests to investigate and develop our bearings in terms of performance and reliability found them hard to improve upon.

WRAS Approved Bearings

We have WRAS approval for our composite material, Maritex AquaPure. The Water Regulations Advisory Scheme Approval means that these specific bearings comply with the high requirements of The Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 (Water Byelaws 2000 Scotland). Failure to use an approved product for drinking water/portable cold water applications can result in a breach of water industry regulations, the purpose of which is to prevent contamination of drinking water.

The current Exalto bearing design can be seen as a benchmark… The recommendation is to design a bearing with the same profile as the current Exalto bearing. It is really hard to improve these bearings
