SKF supplies components for lifesaving health care equipment
Swe-Cham Patron Member SKF supplies bearings and seals needed to make critical ventilators for hospitals. We are happy to supply the components needed for this lifesaving health care equipment, says SKF.

  About SKF There’s a lot we all take for granted. We’re counting on trams, subway trains and buses to take us through our cities safely and sustainably. We trust water treatment facilities to supply us with fresh water, and the food industry to safeguard us from allergens and bacteria. We expect wind farms to keep our lights on, and cars to be electric. There are a million other every day needs to satisfy – and a planet to take care of. In a world shaped by population growth, urbanization, digitalization and environmental concerns, industrial reality is the true challenge. And that’s exactly where we at SKF want to be. Right at the centre, providing reliable performance for the real world. Our expertise is built on the development, design and manufacture of bearings, seals and lubrication systems. And we also provide machine health assessment, reliability engineering and remanufacturing services. But what we’re really offering is an arena for innovation. An open space where our customers can use the tools we provide to explore, improve or rethink the performance of their rotating equipment. A place where even the smallest adjustment can make a big difference to their industrial reality. www.skf.com

Research by Anticimex shows increase in pest activity in locked down cities

With over 150.000 digitally connected pest traps Anticimex has the ability to see trends in the activity of rodents worldwide. A recent study focussing on major cities shows an increase during the lock down. But creating useful data is not the main benefit of the solutions Anticimex offers.

Marcel Scheel, Online Marketeer at Anticimex the Netherlands explains:

The customers who have our Smart Pest Control solutions stayed protected for rodents during the closure of their business. Various Scania factories in Asia choose for Anticimex Smart solutions during the lock down. Because they wanted 24/7 protection and reducing the risks of downtime due to rodent activity. We are also busy helping companies who are re-opening again. With our Covid19 disinfection service, and of course, our pest prevention solutions.

Thank you to everyone who participated and engaged in yesterday’s Webinar about “What is the role of Circular Economy in the post Covid-19 world?”. A special thanks to the fantastic speakers for sharing their insights and their strategies on how to move forward.   Here are some concluding sentences from Moderator  Andrea Orsag to sum up yesterday’s Webinar: – The only way forward for Europe if we want to ensure a liveable inclusive future is a Green Recovery based on supporting businesses and initiatives helping to lower emissions and creating more equal society for all – with the use of technology, digitalisation and green strategies. – Role of Circular Economy is even more important now than ever since it can help businesses to future proof their strategy, engage stakeholders including the customers in new ways while better capturing the value of resources: design for longevity, repairs, modularity and sharing. – We need leadership – on European, country and local level to collaborate and cooperate, build on what works, scale the solutions and take action NOW. - Taxing rules and the redistribution of subsidies needs to change - to increase the value of resources, motivating the reuse and preventing waste and pollution – There needs to be a new narrative and story to give direction to the possible future we strive for, why it matters and how everyone is a very important part of it: System Change, Business Change and also staying true to the personal values and acting on them.
