Kavial commenced its business in 1994 with intention to satisfy the demand of domestic market consumers for bearings. Until 2001, we found a possibility to establish close cooperation with leading shipbuilding, energy and mining companies all over Estonia despite the strong competition.
In the year 2001, we expanded our warehouses and retail premises; thus, gradually, we were able to enlarge the range of our products, increase the turnover and enter the Baltic market. We added to our previously offered products transmissions and rubber technical articles produced by such leading companies as TTO, Dichta SA, NAK, GAPI Group and improved sale of locksmiths’ tools, turner tools and measuring instruments.
In the year 2002, in result of efforts of our managers, we gained a possibility to offer to consumers car bearings manufactured by companies LSA and JTEKT Corporation (KOYO).
Our positions were strengthened by distributorship agreement concluded with NTN Corporation (NTN-SNR Group in 2007) and A&S Fersa (Spain) in the year 2004.
The year 2005 outstood with considerable increase of our staff; in addition, we commenced cooperation with ContiTech group, the unaffiliated part of the Continental AG holding.
In the year 2006, we became the official distributor of the world-famous company and industry leader Schaeffler Group (INA FAG).
In autumn of the year 2010, the Temporary Distributorship Agreement concluded with SKF Group initiated a new stage in development of the company.
In 2012, we founded subsidiary company Kavial SIA in Riga.
