About Us

For over 30 years Sprint Engineering & Lubricants have been supplying the UK industrial market with quality maintenance, repair & overhaul products from our purpose built 20,000 sq ft. distribution centre in Gravesend Kent.

Our aim has always been to provide a world class service to our customers by establishing a sustainable culture of continuous improvement and development in our staff, products and services.

We have invested heavily in a state-of-the-art computer system that enables us to rapidly respond to customers enquiries, orders and deliveries. In partnership with our customers, our multi-disciplined, friendly and knowledgeable team are able to offer added value services and business solutions which help engineers, purchasing and operations managers achieve greater machinery uptimes, reduced total cost of component acquisition and better returns on investment.

In 2004 Sprint became 1 of only 5 official distributors in the UK for the world’s largest quality bearing manufacturer SKF. All our customer facing staff have participated in the SKF Distributor Technical College Scheme and Sprint’s continuous improvement programmes for both product and skill-based learning.
