Schaeffler in Australia
Schaeffler Australia was founded in 1973 and incorporated INA Bearings and FAG Australia as the one legal entity in 2007. As part of the global and technology arm of the Schaeffler Group, we strive for continuous growth and permanent improvements for our customers.
We are a diverse business with roots in the design and supply of rolling bearings, extensive experience in digital and expert engineering services as well as industry leading experience in reconditioning of rolling stock components. Our Industry 4.0 approach is changing the way we view monitoring and maintenance of rotating assets. This is achieved by implementing quality sensing technology, interfacing with a cloud infrastructure that utilizes Machining Learning and Artificial Intelligence to provide an automated, wholistic and consolidated view of an entire customers site.
Schaeffler Mechanical Services (SMS) is a wholly owned division of Schaeffler Australia with advanced bearing reconditioning and service facilities in Auburn, Sydney.
