Closure of SKF (U.K.) Limited: Sale of bearing manufacturing machines

Up for sale on until November 2nd, 2021, following the closure of SKF (U.K) Limited in Stonehouse, are over 450 quality machines.

With high-quality CNC machines, the production of bearings can be optimised. Modern machines are ideal for producing bearings and can handle all steps from cutting to final test. However, the acquisition of new machines is often associated with high costs. A good way to optimise your own machinery and save costs is to buy used machines.

High-quality production equipment from SKF (U.K.) Limited’s inventory are up for auction on until November 2nd, 2021. The machines of the bearing manufacturer for the aerospace industry are for sale after the closure of the site in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire.
