Moore International buys Ashley Power

Poole based power transmission specialist Moore International has expanded by acquiring Ashley Power

Brothers Mark and Colin Moore, respectively Managing and Sales directors of Moore International, have announced their purchase of what was formerly known as Ashley Bearings.

Mark Moore worked for Ashley Power when they were known as Ashley Bearings in the 1990s, and now, after leaving to set up his own very successful business at Moore International, things have gone full circle with the news that he and his brother have bought Ashley Power.  

Mark explains, “Having started my career in bearings with Graham Tate and the Ashley team in 1984, I worked my way up to director level, but left in 1997 to start Moore International - my own linear bearing and ballscrew supply company. Our continued growth has kept me busy, especially as we now have full in-house CNC turning and milling capabilities as well, but I just couldn’t resist the Ashley opportunity when Graham Tate approached me”.

Despite the pandemic Moore International has been able to retain all of the Ashley team, even Graham, who is said to be slowly easing into retirement! One big change made by Moore International is the rebranding back to Ashley Bearings as the company is well known as such in Poole. As previously, the business remains a leading bearing supplier but now stocks much more than just bearings and today offers a much wider portfolio for machine builders including pulleys, gearboxes, motors, couplings, circlips, o-rings, machine feet, seals and lubricants”.
