Blohm + Voss Industries GmbH bought by SKF Group

The SKF Group has acquired our principal and shareholder Blohm + Voss Industries.

Blohm + Voss Industries is a leading manufacturer and service provider of premium quality equipment for critical marine applications, including shaft components (seals – especially the respected Simplex sterntube seal – and bearings), stabilisers, and oily water separators.
BVI operations and capabilities have a very strong fit with the SKF marine strategy and complement SKF’s existing marine product and service range. This will further establish SKF as a leading supplier of marine sealing arrangements, and hydrodynamic bearings, which is a significant bearing type in the marine industry. It will also strengthen SKF’s service capabilities with a complementary marketing network of sales agents and service stations worldwide.

Blohm + Voss Industries will be integrated into SKF’s marine segment.
