Late Shri R. C. Patel, founder of Patel Brass Works was one of the first entrepreneurs to set up manufacturing facilities at Rajkot.
Established in 1948 as a small foundry, PBW started its operations by producing castings for brass items. In 1953, a small workshop was added to manufacture brass buttons, tumblers and strainers. By 1965, PBW gained significant experience in casting and finishing of nonferrous components. Around this time, there was a need of developing critical components like bimetal bearings, which was identified by PBW then. Initially these were made for slow speed diesel engines. However in 1980, high grade precision bearings were introduced for high speed engines, compressors and earthmovers.
Around 1990 PBW ventured into export of outsourced critical engineering components for different applications like engines, compressors, pumps and purifiers, Earth Movers, Homogenizers etc.
Later in 2014, with aim of growing share of Large Bore Bearings worldwide, PBW's bearing manufacturing activity became part of JV with Federal Mogul Powertrain by way of establishing new JV company FM PBW Bearings Pvt. Ltd. The parent company Patel Brass Works Pvt. Ltd. continued with its business of engineering components.
