Schaeffler acquires Bega International

29 September, 2021
Rauli Hantikainen: “By working with Bega, we can offer our customers top-quality total lifecycle services and solutions for bearings and other powertrain components.”

Schaeffler has acquired Bega International BV (Bega), manufacturer of special tools for mounting and dismounting rolling bearings. The acquisition marks another step in the expansion of Schaeffler’s lifecycle service portfolio.

Access to the IIoT platform created for Schaeffler’s OPTIME condition monitoring solution also opens new possibilities for Bega’s intelligent maintenance tools. Customers will also benefit. They will have a common user interface for all touchpoints, which will help ensure a seamless user experience across the rolling bearing lifecycle, from installation to monitoring and maintenance, right through to repair.

Customers and partners will be able to source solutions and services for rolling bearing maintenance and monitoring from a single provider. They will benefit from more streamlined access to a range of upkeep and repair solutions.

Partner of choice

Rauli Hantikainen, head of Schaeffler’s Industry 4.0 strategic business field, comments: “The thinking behind our strategically important Industry 4.0 business is to be the partner of choice for predictive and prescriptive maintenance solutions. By working with Bega, we can offer our customers top-quality total lifecycle services and solutions for bearings and other powertrain components.”

Henk van Essen, the current CEO of Bega who will stay on in that role, adds: “Thanks to this new partnership, Schaeffler and Bega will rank among the top providers of maintenance solutions. We also want to be the most innovative provider of maintenance tools.”

The expansion of service business under the ‘Roadmap 2025’ strategy shows how Schaeffler is constantly developing its offering and becoming more innovative, agile and efficient. As part of its new strategic direction, the company is pushing ahead with the expansion of its portfolio of asset lifecycle products and services.
