SKF’s continued commitment to technology development is important for maintaining and strengthening the company’s technological leadership.

SKF has a strong global network of research and development (R&D) centres and laboratories, as well as established collaborations with major universities and research institutes, and the creation of new centres and collaborations is ongoing.

SKF continues to increase its activities in the R&D arena with a greater focus on new products and services which have a positive impact on the environment. Examples of these are included in the SKF BeyondZero product portfolio.  In addition, there has been a greater concentration on strengthening core technologies, launching new products, increasing R&D activities in rapidly developing regions and further strengthening our links with universities and technical colleges.
