Our relationship with Klein Gelenkwellen GmbH dates back to 1983, when we were initially engaged to manufacture propshafts for U.K. customers of Klein. During that time we have stocked and distributed their products throughout the U.K. and further afield. In 1998 Klein also purchased a 25% shareholding in Bailey Morris Ltd. Our excellent working relationship compliments the activities of both companies and gives us a significant advantage in meeting the aftermarket requirements of leading European truck manufacturers such as DAF, Iveco, MAN, Mercedes-Benz (including Unimog) and Volvo.
In 2004, having enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Welte Wenu GmbH, Bailey Morris Ltd formally became an EDS (European Driveshaft Services) partner, which is a membership of over 50 companies providing a supply network for driveshafts and components; this again complimented our core activity.
During 2009 we became an official stockist and distribution partner for Elbe Gelenkwellen and Elso Precision Shafts. This further enhanced our product portfolio and expanded our driveshaft range to meet the requirements of niche non-automotive market products, allowing us to also focus on specialist equipment manufacturers & operators.
In 2014 became an INDUTRADE group member company. The Directors of Bailey Morris Ltd, recognising the opportunities and advantages of becoming a member of a much larger group, transferred share ownership.
