How are AKE bearings?

In a more recent history, the production of bearings in the Austrian towns of Steyr and Berndorf has been gradually integrated into the structures of renowned world manufacturers. However, the production of bearings under the original AKE brand has been preserved to this day.
Historically top quality bearings
In 1993, IMET a.s. The company bought AKV-AKE, among other things, with the intention to continue production and sale of AKE bearings.
