India is investing heavily into infrastructure projects across the country. This has meant a lift for sectors like construction and automotive, and in turn, a major demand for the development of new products to support this emerging market.
SKF India had always turned to European and global colleagues for engineering services and solutions, but in order to meet the growing demand, The Global Technical Center India opened its doors in Bangalore in 2011.
