We appreciate all the support we’ve received from state and local officials,” said Dr. Michael Hartnett, president and CEO of RBC Bearings Inc.

The company will relocate to the new facilities at 123 Commerce Way in Westminster, S.C., which will expand its manufacturing space from 35,000 square feet to 63,000 square feet. The company plans to begin operations in the new facility in the first quarter of 2013.

“Today’s announcement is another win for one of our state’s rural counties. We celebrate A.I.D. Company’s decision to locate in Oconee County with a $7 million investment and the creation of 75 new jobs.

“Manufacturing continues to be a strong sector in South Carolina’s economy, and the aviation and aerospace industry is an increasingly important part of manufacturing here.

SKF感受到中国EV动力的力量

SKF感受到中国EV动力的力量(0)

This article, press release or announcement is translated from BearingNEWS (www.bearing-news.com) publications or from China Bearing Commercial Community (CBCC) sources哥德堡——中国对瑞典斯凯孚(SKF)公司轴承的需求量日益增加。得益于人们对电动汽车需求量的增加以及供应商对快速变化的汽车技术的适应,斯凯孚目前每月拿下至少一笔新订单。 斯凯孚汽车业务总裁Bernd Stephan称,虽然欧洲电动汽车的销量也在增加,但中国电动汽车的销量正呈井喷式增长。“我们在这一领域获得了大量新业务……如此多的项目突如其来,我们在持续地与这些客户洽谈。”Stephan说。 电动汽车对轴承制造商的影响巨大,这是因为电动汽车通常使用的轴承数量约为内燃机汽车使用轴承数量的一半。在斯凯孚专注于轴承和密封件等零部件的同时,包括德国舍弗勒集团在内的竞争对手们正在开发完整的电驱动产品系列。由于斯凯孚只有4%的产品用于内燃机,而轮毂轴承是其销量最多的产品,斯凯孚在很大程度上受到了保护。“我们在内燃机汽车市场中失去的业务,正在电动汽车市场中赢回来。”Stephan表示。处于两者之间的更多混合动力车的出现,对我们也是有利的。 汽车轴承市场竞争日益激烈,客户对价格越来越敏感,再加上中国竞争对手的崛起,这些都使人愈加担忧斯凯孚的长期盈利能力。Stephan称,斯凯孚可以使用更经济的钢铁和不同的部件来降低非高端轴承的制造成本。“我们的生产率是很高,并且不只在欧洲生产轴承。” 斯凯孚汽车业务还与日本NTN、NSK和JTEKT公司以及中国人本集团等公司展开竞争,其销售额占到了斯凯孚2017年销售额的31%。 尽管汽车业务一直是集团担忧的问题,但2015年的重整计划已经开始发挥作用,在第一季度几乎实现了8%的利润目标。重整计划主要针对高度定制的轴承和密封件。 展望未来的完全无人驾驶汽车市场,Stephan认为这会带来更多变化,由于轮毂轴承使用强度增加,轮毂轴承可能需要有更长的使用寿命。“现在,人们还意识不到无人驾驶意味着什么。理论上说,车辆数量将降低到现在的三分之一。”Stephan还补充道,现在为此做好准备非常重要。 2016年,斯凯孚汽车产品销售额达到了18.4亿美元,名列《欧洲汽车新闻》全球前100名供应商名单第86名。
