The Schaeffler Group is a global automotive and industrial supplier. The Schaeffler Group is already making a decisive contribution to “Mobility for Tomorrow” today 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 groundbreaking innovations and global customer orientation.
The cornerstone for the group of companies today was laid by brothers Dr. Wilhelm Schaeffler and Dr.-Ing. E.h. Georg Schaeffler in 1946 with the founding of the limited company. The rise of the company began when Dr. Georg Schaeffler invented the needle cage in 1949, followed by the production of large quantities of cage-guided needle roller bearings by INA for the German automotive industry shortly thereafter.
In 1965, the Schaeffler brothers founded LuK “Lamellen- und Kupplungsbau GmbH” in Bühl, Germany. The company became the market’s technological leader with its very first innovative product, a diaphragm spring clutch. LuK, one of the world’s largest clutch manufacturers and a specialist for drive trains, became part of Schaeffler in 1999.
