Mexico – The company is providing wheel hub and MacPherson suspension bearing units for the Golf VII. Deliveries started in the first quarter of 2015.
The SKF factory is close to VW’s manufacturing site at Puebla and able to supply just-in-time deliveries at short notice. The company already provides bearing units for the Golf VII across Europe and Asia; the new arrangement in Puebla extends to North America its collaboration with VW on the MQB platform.
“Volkswagen is one of our key strategic accounts and we are very pleased to extend our relationship with them,” said Stephane Le-Mounier, president, Automotive Market, SKF. “Our global footprint and focus on being close to our customers enables us to support Volkswagen wherever they produce their vehicles.”
