SKF earns PACE Award for Scotseal X-Treme

Global technology provider SKF recently won the 2018 Automotive News PACE Award for its Scotseal X-Treme wheel-end seal.

SKF received the award during a ceremony April 9 in Detroit.

The PACE Award recognizes OE vehicle suppliers for superior innovation, technological advancement and business performance.

“At SKF, we continually strive to be an innovative technology partner for our customers, not just a supplier of bearings and seals,” said Cengiz R Shevket, SKF’s vice president of innovation and customer value for the Americas. 

“We are very proud to achieve this recognition for a game-changing product with superior performance.”

Scotseal X-Treme is the latest addition to SKF’s line of wheel-end seals for drive, steer and trailer axles. It offers the vehicle service market and OE truck and trailer manufacturers reliability and long life in the harshest of operating conditions. 

The 24th annual PACE Awards were presented by Automotive News, and the Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association (APMA). The competition was open to suppliers who contribute products, processes, materials or services directly to the manufacture of cars or trucks. The Automotive News PACE Award is accepted around the world as the industry benchmark for innovation.
