A proud Cairns business since 1982, Allied Bearings & Tools are specialists in the automotive, industrial and marine industry.

The company is 100 per cent locally-owned and operated in the Far North and has strived to achieve excellent service since the day it was founded more than 35 years ago, by Geoff Lucas and Gordon Phillips.

“We endeavour to use as many local suppliers as possible to maintain our local strength and support local business,” says Geoff’s son William, who took helm of the business in (what year?).

“We always put the customers’ needs first and will always try to work with them to find a solution to your problem, no matter how impossible it may seem.”

Since its humble beginnings in the early ‘80s, stocking mainly bearings and seals, the business has seen a rather large expansion over the last 15 years.

“We have moved heavily into Kincrome Tools, becoming the largest independent distributor Australia-wide for five years from 2012,” says William.

“We have the largest range of Kincrome Professional Quality Tools in Queensland, plus a range of other tools and brands to compliment the Kincrome range.

“In more recent times, we’ve added hydraulic hoses and fittings to our repertoire, taking on the distributorship for Taipan’s range of hoses and fittings, as well as offering an on-site crimping service.”

“We have also expanded our stock to include a wide range of auto parts – everything from bump stops through hub assemblies to timing belt kits.”

With a staff that has more than 100 years’ combined experience in the bearing industry, Allied Bearings & Tools has grown over the years to be one of Cairns' leading automotive suppliers to both trade and public.

“Our stock range is continually growing to meet the needs of a forever-changing market. And even if we don't have the item you need, it is never too far away,” William says.

“We strive to be your one shop stop.”

Find all your automotive bearings, timing belts, fan belts, water pumps, tools and workshop equipment under the one roof at Allied Bearings & Tools, 149 Aumuller St, Bungalow.
