GLYCO parts was founded in Germany back in 1897 and was named Glyco Metall GmbH. The company’s goal was to become one of the leading manufacturers of high-quality bearings. Around forty years later in 1937, GLYCO Metall became the largest supplier of automotive bearings in Germany. Later in 1968, the company started designing and manufacturing its own sliding bearings which proved to be a major cash cow for the brand. That lead to GLYCO Metall becoming the largest supplier of bearings in Europe by 1974. Moving forward the company introduced a number of bearings which included the Gylo Sputter Bearing in 1982 which meant that it became the exclusive seller of the multi-layer compounded material. However, in 1990 the GLYCO parts were acquired by Federal-Mogul Corporation, and it is the same corporation which controls it to this day.
GLYCO specializes in designing, manufacturing and selling high-quality bearings for cars and industrial applications. In the UK GLYCO bearings are some of the most sought after aftermarket bearings in the country. We are also one of the leading online sellers of GLYCO bearings.
