The European Power Transmission Distributors Association (EPTDA), the leading European organization for the mechanical power transmission and motion control (PT/MC) industry, is privileged to announce it recently welcomed Miller Bearings Inc., a distributor company based in the United States, as an active member. Founded in 1947, Miller Bearings Inc. settled its headquarters in Orlando, Florida and serves many industry sectors such as mining, construction, food processing & distribution, beverage, packing, agriculture and mills. New market penetrations include wastewater and water treatment, injection molding, waste to energy, warehouse distribution, fluid power, bulk material handling, airports and industrial supplies.

Bill Bieberbach, president of Miller Bearings Inc., comments: "Miller Industrial Solutions markets and sell ideas to a very broad range of customers. The company utilizes a wide spectrum of industrial products and industrial systems to implement those ideas. We are thrilled to become members of the EPTDA. We know that it would be very beneficial for our company to look beyond our boundaries (North & South America) not only for new suppliers but also for key partners."

"We are exceptionally proud to welcome a leading U.S.-based distributor like Miller Bearings," declares Hans Hanegreefs, executive vice president, EPTDA. "This is a clear indication that our neighbors from across the Atlantic are looking for channels to new markets and new customers. This is where the EPTDA plays its role as a leading, professional association for the PT/MC industry, providing a gateway to Europe - Western, Central and Eastern, and further beyond! Our organization offers solid grounds and market knowledge to help our members outside Europe reach out to new business potential in unexplored territories. Miller Bearings have been a member of our sister organization in the United States (PTDA) for years. Though both associations' member companies can already take advantage of mutual benefits, we expect more North American companies to join the EPTDA formally and benefit fully from our integral range of member services, programs and privileges," continues Hanegreefs.

The EPTDA continues its efforts to raise its brand awareness within the power transmission and motion control industry network globally with powerful promotion campaigns. As a result of these campaigns, the organization anticipates further membership growth until its next annual convention, EPTDA Lisbon 2012, scheduled on September 26-28 in the Portuguese capital.
