is this company connected?
« on: 23.06. 2010 21:43 »
I recently had to order some sintered bronze for a job at work from my local bearing suppliers .This is what i received. The company that makes this material;  BSA Oilite,  has a logo remarkably familiar.

 Anyone know if they are are they descended or related to the company we all know and love?

They must have been part of the BSA group. Looks like they had an eventful past:
