Since being founded in 1947 in Palo Alto, Dura-Bond moved to Nevada in 1987. Dura-Bond developed the full round, no seam cam bearing after WWII for the rebuilding industry. The company also brought in the powder metal valve seat product line in 1996 for advanced valve seat technology. In the years since, Dura-Bond has expanded into transmission product line offerings with components and kits, and the company’s future is in place for powertrain to compliment the changing markets.

Charles Barnett, Dura-Bond’s CEO and Chairman turns 75 this year as well.

Charles (Chuck) Barnett, Dura-Bond’s CEO and chairman, has been with the company for 26 years and is also celebrating his 75th birthday. Earlier this year, he received the Charles Yount Lifetime Award from AERA.

Moving forward, Barnett will be staying around as Dura-Bond’s chairman, while letting the Dura-Bond team continue to serve the company’s customers and markets.
