Three power transmission and bearings suppliers — P.T. International (PTI), Charlotte, North Carolina; IPTCI Bearings, Chanhassen, Minnesota; and LMS Bearings, Lafayette, Colorado — have united under a new master brand called Solve Industrial Motion Group.

Solve, which is based in Charlotte, bills itself as a “one-stop resource for both metric and American standard products with an inventory of more than 25,000 SKUs of quality, lab-inspected components.”

The company has five regional stocking locations and plans to add more. Solve serves such markets as food and beverage, agriculture, mining, steel, automotive, textiles, wood products, lawn and garden, and pharmaceuticals.

“Each company’s customer experience will be enhanced under the new service brand of Solve Industrial Motion Group with coordinated sales and engineering support, custom design and manufacturing, and other value-added offerings,” the company said in a press release. “The IPTCI, PTI and LMS product lines remain fully intact to meet customer needs – but now just one click or call will provide fast access to a full line of components.”
