QBOL Turns 10

We’re Celebrating Our 10 Year Anniversary

Having been an established business for 10 years, we have experienced great highs and lows, but the growth and success we have experienced as a business would not have been possible without our trusted customers and partners. We have become the multi-award-winning company we are today due to the success we have had from serving numerous different industries and from partnering with universities and local community projects. We strive to go above and beyond to help our customers with what they need as we understand how crucial and costly it can be for them to experience machine downtime. In 2022, we wish to celebrate our anniversary with our customers and partners. We want to Thank You for your loyalty to us, utilising our brand and services. We appreciate and cherish the many business relationships we have built and look forward to building new relationships in the future. We wish to continue to be your chosen industrial supplier for bearings and engineering spares and our dedicated team will remain here for all your bearing needs.

15th February 2022

Our 10th Anniversary celebrations have begun! In February, within our office, we had a fun-filled day celebrating with those that matter most – Our QBOL Team. We kicked the morning off with Bucks Fizz and ran a quiz on QBOL’s history for the whole day. The team were treated to a plentiful food huddle with an impressive 2ft tall brownie stack. We ended the day with a company presentation in the afternoon, walking everyone through what we’ve achieved over the last 10 years. We even had some sweet messages from QBOL alumni members and ended the evening with a competitive riddle game to crack the safe for prizes!

What's Next?

We’ve experienced nothing but high growth during these last 10 years, and with that, our team has rapidly expanded. We have now outgrown our current warehouse and office, therefore, this year in Summer, we will be relocating to a brand-new office and larger warehouse where we will continue to develop and grow our team whilst offering our customers a better service and experience with our brand. Our team are very excited for this new chapter of QBOL, with many of us personally developing in our roles and learning new skills. Watch this space!  We are wanting to invite keynote speakers and industry experts into our workspace to inspire and share their knowledge with us, our partners and local communities, therefore, we’ll be working towards catering for this in the future!

A Clean and Digital Future Awaits

Clean

Sustainability is becoming a key part of QBOL’s strategy in 2022. We aim to have it embedded into the fabric of our company where we will begin to take responsibility for tackling environmental challenges.

Digital

COVID-19 has accelerated digitalisation for businesses and have changed the world, creating a new normal. We plan to digitalise core functions of our business in the following year to help us offer our customers and partners better service and to lead on the forefront of supply and distribution.

Our QBOL Difference

Our strategic approach and vision for the next few years include implementing world class practices and high-quality standards. With the uncertainty the world has shown us in the past 2 years, we plan on becoming more flexible adapting to change and wish to continue to be a disruption in our marketplace – “not your traditional bearing supplier”.

The QBOL Team

Quality Bearings Online have achieved huge successes in the last 10 years with help from our dedicated team. We are so grateful for each and every one of them, who all bring wealth's of knowledge and experience. Each individual is committed in their personal and professional development and as the company grows, we support our team to grow as individuals too. Now, let’s celebrate the people who have helped us behind the scenes to quote, source, and pack the goods you receive.

We believe as a company we have a responsibility towards our planet and our local community.

This year, we are currently putting together our very own CSR action plan to help tackle world-wide problems alongside other leading brands.

Our QBOL team have been working on this project to define and outline our CSR goals, the project is still undergoing but it will become something that we wish to share with our customers and partners once complete.

To give you a sneak preview, here are the 4 key areas of CSR that we wish to have an impact on.
