Formed in 1998, IADA was set up by a small group of Authorised Independent Distributors of Bearings and Power Transmission products throughout the UK in order to pool together resources to negotiate buying power with the world's leading manufacturers, in order to compete against the Nationals, from which the IADA directors had come from in setting up their own businesses.

Going from strength to strength over the past 20 years, IADA has grown to a group of 26 specifically chosen independent companies, with 53 Service Centres offering full Nationwide coverage.

Our members each individually offer extensive, unrivalled in-house expertise and MRO supply solutions, backed up by large stocks held at their local branches, and when pooled together IADA is a unique group, drawing on many years of and areas of expertise offering our customers the very best service in the industry across all market sectors.
