SKF is delivering bonded piston seals to Geely Automobile, China, under a business agreement worth more than $15 million. The five-year agreement calls on SKF to deliver seals to equip Geely’s automatic transmission (6AT) for its car models GC6 and Emgrande EC8 and its first SUV, Gleagle GX7.
“The bonded piston seal solution from SKF now enables our transmissions to be even more robust, with higher performance,” says Shaoquan Zhao, purchasing director, Geely Automobile.
“The cooperation is very beneficial to us, and we are very satisfied to work with SKF as an engineering partner,” Zhao says. “Geely is moving to the premium segment of cars, so it is important to cooperate with high-quality brands like SKF.”
