Introducing Schaeffler

Resilient today.
Empowering tomorrow.

The year 2020 was a gigantic stress test for us. However, we utilised the crisis to think through, identify pain points, and formulate feasible counter measures to navigate the new normal. Our balanced portfolio, stringent cost discipline and realisations from new projects enabled us to gradually improve our performance and take advantage of the pent-up demand in key markets as the economy rebooted. We launched a range of innovative products and provided service excellence to our clients, without compromising on the health and safety of our teams. During the first half of the year, all of us were pushed into uncharted territory due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We responded with agility, resilience and stayed the course, focused on our core initiatives – Protect, Retool and Recover.

In the second half of 2020, Schaeffler group launched its global strategy Roadmap 2025 supported by our new positioning – We pioneer motion. Similarly, in India, we have created our long-term roadmap aligned with the global strategy roadmap.

We will continue to stay ahead by demonstrating agility, innovation and efficiency in all that we do, while striving to enable an empowering tomorrow for all.
