Toronto, ON — Apr. 8, 2002 — The SKF Group is celebrating 85 years of operation in Canada in 2002. In 1917, the 10-year-old company opened a Canadian office that led to the formation of the Canadian SKF Company Limited.
Within 10 years, SKF Canada Limited, as the company came to be known, constructed its own warehouse and office building on Bay St. in Toronto.
In 1982, SKF Canada opened its present head office and distribution centre in Scarborough, Ont.
Today, SKF operates in 130 countries and has more than 80 manufacturing facilities worldwide.
