Burlington, ON — SKF Lubrication Solutions division has relocated from its facility in Burlington, ON, to a 22,000 sq ft facility in Mississauga, ON. The lubrication division now has its Sales, Customer Service, Engineering and Service operations together to better serve Canadian customer needs.

The SKF Lubrication Solutions division was created in March 2007 when SKF Canada acquired Automatic Lubrication Systems (ALS) of Burlington.

The Mississauga facility also is the home for the SKF Economos Sealing and Engineered Plastics team. This division, which resulted from SKF’s acquisition of Economos Canada (formerly Custom Seal) in 2006, supplies sealing and engineering plastics solutions, as well as custom-made plastic components.

In addition to its Mississauga facility, SKF Canada has sales, engineering and service operations in Montreal, Scarborough (head office), Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver.

In 2004, SKF acquired the Willy Vogel AG, which provided automatic lubrication solutions for fleet, construction and industrial equipment.

SKF’s three pillars of success are its global presence, the experience from working in more then 40 industry segments and the five technology platforms of Bearings and Units, Seals, Lubrication Systems, Mechatronics, and Services. The acquisition of Vogel was strategically important to SKF’s objective of having a leading role in all its technology platforms.
