?This will enable us to further support our Australian customers with solutions to improve their productivity and reduce costs in a sustainable way,? said Tom Johnstone, SKF Group President and CEO.
?Now we have 18 SKF Solution Factories across the world and more under construction. These are all strategically placed in areas to allow industries easy access to SKF?s competencies and core technologies.?
The company chose Perth due to its close proximity to the Australian mining industry.
?The SKF Solution Factory employs local staff and combines the full range of SKF?s expertise within our five technology platforms with workshop facilities, which provide customised services and solutions for our customers,such as remanufacturing and customisation, application engineering, lubrication applications, mechanical services, technical support and training to help them improve performance, reduce energy use and lower their overall costs,? said Tony Doodson, managing director of SKF Australia.
