About Us

Modern Linear, Inc. was founded by Steve Fulton in 2004. Steve has worked in the linear motion industry for over twenty years designing and selling all types of linear motion products. His experience includes working for industry leaders that produce ball bushings and profile rail technology, as well as Teflon bushings and guide rollers. This experience led Steve to start a company devoted to guide roller components and guide roller technology.

Modern Linear’s goal is to improve the performance of automated equipment. To achieve this, we develop products that offer superior longevity, improve machine performance, and lower operating costs. Our customer service goals are to always ship from stock or with the shortest manufacturing lead times in the industry. Our mission is to provide all of our customers with high quality, durable products, and outstanding customer service.

Customer Service

  • Ship From Stock. Our expansive warehouse stocks all components and linear guides, allowing for same day or next day shipping.  This “ship from stock” motto means you can place orders based on your changing product needs with no lead time required.
  • Monolithic Pricing. Product pricing is not quantity sensitive.  We guarantee our lowest price, no matter if you are ordering 1 or 100 pieces.  This means there is no pressure to buy more than you need or place blanket orders because of discount incentives. Our goal is to satisfy 100% of our customers’ requirements, regardless of the size of the order.
  • Special Orders. Modern Linear has produced a wide variety of unique linear solutions for customers. These include special coatings, machining, lubricants, and complete custom designs. We are eager to collaborate on general machine design and discuss the merit of different linear guide options.

Operation BBQ Relief

Founded in May 2011 in response to a need for tornado relief efforts in Joplin, Missouri, competitive pit-masters from nine different states answered the call to feed displaced families and first responders. Together, they were able to serve over 120,000 meals in a 13-day period. This experience of building a network to feed individuals in need has been the inspiration for Operation BBQ Relief. To date, Operation BBQ Relief has provided over 9 million meals throughout the United States and internationally following natural disasters, COVID-19 response, and through The Always Serving Project, benefiting the homeless, first responders, veterans and members of the military. Modern Linear is privileged to support this organization. Visit to learn more.
