08/06/2017 – Official opening event for the Sven Wingquist Test Center in Schweinfurt together with Dirk Denzer and his team.
The EUR 40 million investment will help to adapt heavy-duty bearings more precisely and efficiently to their tasks than has been possible to date thanks to the results of two modern test rigs. The SKF Group CEO Alrik Danielson and numerous celebrities from politics and business gathered on the SKF premises in Schweinfurt to mark the grand opening of the one-of-a-kind facility, which Dirk Denzer and his team were involved in organizing.
The guests were not only wowed by the machine comedian ULIK and his unique performance with a genuine industrial robot but also thoroughly enjoyed the special SKF-oriented media show of Dobs Brugal with his video suitcase. The charming presenter Marc Gassert managed proceedings in English throughout the international event.
