The investment is part of Schaeffler’s ongoing initiative to strengthen its footprint in the region to give its customers faster and wider access to its advanced products and technologies.

FAG Aerospace has developed and manufactured specialty bearings, integrated bearing systems as well as high-precision components for the aviation and aerospace industries.  Renowned for their reliability and quality, FAG Aerospace components can be found in most of the leading airplane models in operation today, including the Airbus 380 and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

“Schaeffler is where our customers are. Singapore is an important aviation hub and has over one hundred companies related to the aerospace industry in such a small geographic area. With this new facility, we are committed to bring greater value to our customers in the form of fast, reliable and cost-effective access to outstanding service and parts,” said Andreas Schick, CEO Schaeffler Asia Pacific.

The remanufacturing facility is designed as per the best practice layout, technologies, equipment and workflow from Schaeffler’s existing aerospace bearing remanufacturing centers in Europe and North America. The 500 m2 floor area is optimized to fulfill the high global standards of FAG Aerospace and as mandated by aviation authorities. The facility offers service inspection Level 1 and 2 components and also provides original OEM spare parts replacement. After refurbishment, the bearings will be as “good as new”.

“FAG Aerospace Singapore is the first company to offer bearing refurbishments for the growing aviation industry in this region. Leading global aerospace companies expect a major boom in the aviation sector in Southeast Asia within the next 10 years. This new facility in Singapore enables us to stay close to our customers and grow together with them in this important aviation hub,” said Mark Gabel, Vice President Industrial Aftermarket SEA.”
