About company

The company is part of Daido Metal Co., Ltd. a Japanese corporate group founded in 1939 and currently one of the largest manufacturers of slide bearings in the world.

The DAIDO METAL CZECH s.r.o. manufacturing plant in Brno was opened in 2005. It was expanded in 2013 with the addition of a new production hall, and the company now employs over 300 professionals.  Also in 2013, the sister company Daido Metal Co., Ltd. – The European Technical Center, based at the Brno manufacturing plant, was founded. It researches the tribological characteristics of materials, and shares these analyses with the parent company for further usage within the corporate group. The plant also earns the distinction of being the first greenfield Daido Metal site outside of Asia, rather than being an acquisition.

The company manufactures: engine bearings, used in the engines of the world’s premier car manufacturers polymer bearings, used in fuel pumps, automobile and motorcycle suspensions, and compressors used in air conditioning systems in both cars and buildings
turbocharger bearings.
