CLEVELAND (June 3, 2013) – SKF has been a global technology provider since 1907. Its fundamental strength is the ability to continuously develop new technologies and then use them to create products that offer competitive advantages to end users. The company achieves this by combining hands-on experience in more than 40 industries with its knowledge across the SKF technology platforms: bearings and units, seals, mechatronics, services and lubrication systems. SKF’s success is based on its knowledge, its people and its commitment to SKF Care principles—business, the environment, employees and the community.

SKF Solution Factory is where people and technology come together to create greater asset performance. SKF knowledge and services is applied to design, create and deliver custom solutions for the toughest productivity challenges. It might be a machine that is underperforming, a need to implement a plant-wide life-cycle management program, or a solution designed from the ground up. Whatever the challenge, an SKF Solution Factory is an end user’s single point of access to SKF's entire industrial and application know-how.

The newest Solution Factory is in Cleveland, Ohio, and is the site of a press day at which media members will learn about new SKF technologies and tour the Cleveland facility. The services that will be highlighted during this tour are its Machine Health Reporting Program, Lubrication Solutions, and other new SKF technology.
