DAIMLER Germany chooses Fersa Bearings as its official supplier
Fersa will be the official bearing supplier for commercial vehicle axles at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Kassel.
We have signed an agreement with the automotive giant Daimler to become an official supplier of bearings for the axels of commercial vehicles such as the Actros. For this project, we have carried out an expansion and adaptation of our plant in Zaragoza (Spain). Total investment is expected to be greater than 4 million euros in total.
The new production line increases the capacity of the factory by 20%. This state-of-the-art production facility has been designed with the most advanced technologies on the market: the production line is able to model a digital twin that gives feedback in real time and facilitates continuous optimization of the process. During the manufacturing process, more than 20 different variables are measured on the final product and reported and linked to the DataMatrix code of each component. This allows us to perform a complete trend analysis for quality control purposes.
Fersa's firm commitment to product innovation, intelligent manufacturing, and digital transformation were the key elements for Daimler Germany to select us over other alternatives in the international market.
This agreement and investment is an important step for us as we continue to manufacture high precision bearings with a complex product. With the Daimler Germany project, Fersa Bearings expands its extensive experience in supplying to OEM customers.
