History of LM-Tarbell, Advanced Plain Bearing Specialists

LM76 has done a great job over the years, merging with other companies to grow and expand their reach around the world. One such merge was their partnership with LM-Tarbell.

LM-Tarbell was originally founded in 1930 as the Chrysler's Amplex division to manufacture sintered bronze brushings. Eight years later, they decided to offer their services to the entire industry and established distributors across the United States. Then, when John C. Tarbell was awarded the New England States territory, J.C Tarbell was founded.

The LM-Tarbell store originally was a simple storefront but the business quickly grew to accommodate full machining capabilities for some of their larger company customers including GE, Pneumatic Scale, Smith & Wesson, Sikorsky Aircraft and Indian Motorcycles. Today, the company is owned by the third generation grandson, John W. Tarbell. He made the decision in 1998 to merge to LM76 and the name was changed to LM-Tarbell.
