Shishir Joshipura, Managing Director and Country Head, SKF India, said, “This agreement positions us as a strategic partner with a key manufacturer of wind turbines in India. These bearings will be manufactured at SKF’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at Ahmedabad. This is a reflection of SKF’s response and commitment to the government’s ‘Make in India’ program.”
