The Schaeffler Group is a global automotive and industrial supplier. The Schaeffler Group is making a decisive contribution to mobility with its high-precision components and systems in engine, transmission, and chassis applications, in addition to rolling and plain bearing solutions for a large number of industrial applications. Since its beginnings, the Schaeffler company has been characterized by ground breaking innovations and global customer orientation.
The FAG brand is inextricably linked with the rolling bearing industry. In Schweinfurt, Germany, in 1883, Friedrich Fischer designed a ball mill that made it possible to use machines for the first time to produce high-precision steel balls in large volumes. This idea is regarded as the historic beginning of the rolling bearing industry. FAG has been a registered trademark since 1905 and, after being taken over by Schaeffler in 2001, is a key element of the Schaeffler Group together with INA and LuK.
