Schaeffler is ramping up its business activities in the Chinese wind power sector and is putting a new production hall with an area of 22,000 square meters into operation at its Nanjing location in Jiangsu Province, eastern China.
The focus in Nanjing – a location operated by the Industrial division – is on the production of large-size bearings with a diameter of more than 800 millimeters, which are primarily used in wind turbines, gearboxes, and in heavy industry. The production of 12,500 units per year is planned. By opening the new hall, Schaeffler is expanding its production capacities at the location, which now has a total area of 260,000 square meters. As a result, Nanjing is now the largest production location for wind power bearings within the Schaeffler Group. The location employs more than 2,000 people.
