SKF announced investments in its manufacturing and engineering capabilities in Asia. The Investment of 1.25 billion Swedish kronor will increase capabilities and competitiveness across China, India and Southeast Asia.

The next phase of expansion will be completed during 2024, increasing capabilities in several industrial segments.
