Swedish bearing giant SKF expands investment in Xinchang

“The second phase of the Xinchang project is going to start at the end of the year, three years ahead of the original plan.” The Swedish bearing giant SKF Group's senior executives recently made an additional investment decision and received attention from the national bearing industry. “The advantage of Xinchang in the mountainous area is not obvious compared to the big cities.” Yesterday, Wang Weixing, the contact person of the SKF Xinchang project, said frankly, but when they planned to expand their investment, they immediately thought of Xinchang.

In February last year, SKF Group signed a contract with Xinchang to invest more than 100 million US dollars to build a 200-acre ball bearing production base and a global R&D center. This is the first foreign investment project introduced by Xinchang Transnational M&A Industrial Park. In June last year, the first phase project covering 120 acres was started. According to the contract, the second phase will be launched in three years.

At the moment, the first phase of the main plant has just finished, and the second phase will start. From three months behind to catch up with the planned progress, Zhao Xulong, the site construction manager of SKF (China) Co., Ltd., was standing in front of the main project of the first phase of the project. “The key moment is that Xinchang's 'storey two' service is accurate.”

Originally, the construction area of the first-stage single-unit production plant reached 60,000 square meters. The scale and construction difficulty are rare in the national bearing industry. In the early stage of construction, during the continuous rainy period, the progress of the project was seriously delayed. After the rainy season, I wanted to speed up the construction, and the new problems that the concrete could not keep up were coming out.

Zhou Laichun, the full-time "store two" of the SKF Xinchang project and the deputy director of the management committee of Xinchang Economic Development Zone, learned of this situation and led Zhao Xulong to run a concrete manufacturer to find the crux and solve the problem. It turned out that this year, a group of small and medium-sized enterprises in Xinchang invested in construction, resulting in structural shortage of concrete. He worked on the spot and proposed a plan to optimize transportation routes and rationally arrange supply orders so that concrete manufacturers can guarantee the maximum construction needs. And running down like this service has become the norm for Zhou Laichun's work. "I thought he was the project manager." Even the site security guards misunderstood him.

The precise service of “Shop 2” promoted the development of Xinchang Enterprise. Last week, Jintai Machinery, Xintianlong Bearing and Pinuo Machinery jointly established a group of companies to integrate advantageous resources and improve processing and supporting capabilities. In the first three quarters, Xinchang County SMEs queued up to increase investment in new construction and expansion projects by 30% year-on-year.
