SKF announces estimated SEK 5.2 billion contract with China National Heavy Duty Truck Group Co.,Ltd

SKF today announced the agreement of a long-term contract with China National Heavy Duty Truck Group

Co., Ltd, (CNHTC) one of China's top three truck manufacturers. The contract, with an estimated

value of around SEK 5.2 billion, calls for SKF to supply SKF Truck Hub Units, tapered roller bearings,

and seals for CNHTC's latest truck models.


"China is a key growth market for the SKF Group and we continue to make significant investments in

manufacturing, research and development and in our employees. We are committed to supporting our

customers in China and the steps we are taking are in line with the relevant priorities in China's

12th Five-Year Plan," says Tom Johnstone, SKF President and CEO. He further elaborates, "We will

open yet another new factory in Jinan in early 2012 and it will play an important role in supplying

some of our products to China National Heavy Duty Truck Group, as well as other truck and trailer

manufacturers in China."


"SKF is a frontrunner in the areas of reduced life-cycle costs and maintenance-free solutions,"

says Mr. Cai Dong, President of China National Heavy Duty Truck Group Co., Ltd/SINOTRUK. "They

contribute with valuable innovative solutions for efficient and sustainable mobility."


The bearings and units will be manufactured in the new SKF factory currently under construction

in Jinan, Shandong Province, China. The investment for the new factory amounts to around SEK 590

million. The 16,000 m2 factory will be fully operational by the first half of 2012 and will

initially employ about 500 people. The seals will be produced in SKF's factory in Wuhu, Anhui

Province, China.


Today SKF employs over 5,000 people in China. In September this year, SKF opened their 13th

factory in China, which manufactures products specifically for the industrial market. In 2010,

SKF opened the first stage of their Global Technical Centre in Shanghai. This centre is an integral

part of SKF's global research and development and enables SKF to develop specific products for

customers in China including the new business gained from the partnership with CNHTC.
