SKF, Svenska Kullagerfabriken AB (Swedish: Swedish ball bearing factory AB), later AB SKF, is a Swedish bearing company founded in 1907, supplying bearings, seals, lubrication and lubrication systems, maintenance products, mechatronics products, power transmission products and related services globally.




The company was founded on Sven Wingqvist's 1907 Swedish patent No. 25406, a multi-row self-aligning radial ball bearing. The Patent was granted on 6 June in Sweden coinciding with patents in 10 other countries. The new ball bearing was successful from the outset. By 1910, the company had 325 employees and a subsidiary in the United Kingdom. Manufacturing operations were later established in multiple countries.

By 1912, SKF was represented in 32 countries and by 1930, a staff of over 21,000 were employed in 12 manufacturing facilities worldwide with the largest in Philadelphia, Pa.

Assar Gabrielsson, SKF sales manager and Björn Prytz, Managing Director of SKF were the founders of Volvo AB in 1926. In the beginning, the company functioned as a subsidiary automobile company within the SKF group. SKF funded the production run of the first thousand cars, built at Hisingen in Gothenburg, beginning in 1927. SKF used one of the company's trademarked names: AB Volvo, which derives from the Latin "I roll", with its obvious connotations of bearings in motion. The ownership of Volvo lasted until 1935 when the last shares were divested.

In the 1970s SKF embarked on a massive production rationalization program in Europe. A visionary project, "Production Concept for the 80s" was launched with the aim to run the night shifts practically unmanned. To increase productivity and safeguard the product quality, a continuous, automatic flow of bearing rings was needed, so SKF developed the Flexlink multiflex plastic chain conveyor system. SKF
divested FlexLink as a separate company in 1997.


ZKL, a. s. joint-stock company integrates Czech bearing manufacturers producing bearings under the ZKL trade name. It was established in 1999 as a purely Czech private company integrating three manufacturing companies, namely ZKL Brno, a.s., ZKL Klášterec nad Ohří, a.s. and ZKL Hanušovice, a.s. as well as specialized companies


ZKL Výzkum a vývoj, a.s. and ZKL Bearings CZ, a.s. Manufacturing in all of these companies has its own deep history which we endorse and based on these traditions the manufacturing companies guarantee the continuity of ZKL rolling bearing development and production in the Czech Republic.

And just the continuity of ZKL bearing development and production is considered as a key factor which is the source of knowledge and experience affecting positively current company development dynamics. This is the reason why it is advisable to mention some important historical milestones.


The first rolling bearings were produced in the country in the Fichtl and Sachs plants at Perštejn nad Ohří. The Perštejn factory was originally built as a weaving mill. It was bought in 1911 by Dr Emil Sachs from Schveinfurt and he had the buildings rebuilt to an engineering production facility. The first products were free wheels for bicycles. Due to growing production in the parent plant in Schveinfurt friction-balls manufacturing was moved to Pernštejn in 1921 and two years later, the product range was extended by rolling bearings. This production was taken over by SKF in 1930 and it remained part of its assets until 1948 when the factory in Perštejn nad Ohří was acquired by government. The plant in Klášterec nad Ohří was built during the World War II, in 1943 by German company SUMAG to serve the production of military material for aviation industry. In 1945 – 1949 the company got under the national administration and its production programme varied significantly. In 1949 it became part of the TOS Holoubkov national entreprise as a branch plant focused on lathe and circular frame-saw production. Since January 1, 1952 it was associated to ZPS Brno – Líšeň. That year the machine tool production programme was terminated and due to the significant growth of bearings demand and lack of space in the Pernštejn plant, the bearings production was moved to Klášterec na Ohří. Since 1953 only bearings have been produced here and the company to which the Perštejn nad Ohří plant was associated to was named ZKL, n. p. Klášterec nad Ohří.
