Bangalore: SKF's 'Global Testing Centre' in Bangalore was recently inaugurated by the SKF Group President and CEO, Tom Johnstone and SKF India Managing Director Rakesh Makhija.

"We are putting in place in India a ‘knowledge infrastructure’ that allows us to provide state of the art technology solutions from SKF. The new testing centre will significantly reduce lead time for our customers and ensure that we are able to respond speedily to their requirements for new products," said Tom Johnstone.

Initially, the Global Testing Centre will cater to the Two Wheeler, Automotive and Sealing Solutions businesses of SKF, and will subsequently be expanded to encompass the Industrial segment.

The main objective will be to conduct testing at close proximity to it's customers for design, process and supplier validation. This then shall entail greater support for SKF’s processes in a faster and cost effective manner by applying global test standards that adapt to local customer specific requirements. The centre is expected to ensure greater focus on customer requirements, cost, quality and operational efficiency.

"Our objective is to ensure that we provide complete solutions to our customers by combining and integrating different products, systems and services. The Global Testing Centre fully supports the SKF strategy of providing knowledge engineering solutions to our customers," he added.

The centre will be a hub of testing activities and will also cater to testing value added solutions that integrate SKF’s five technology platforms.
