Schaeffler Strategy 2025

We pioneer motion to advance how the world moves

Motion and mobility are key factors for successfully meeting our global challenges. Our success will depend largely on our ability to rethink and produce pioneering solutions for motion and mobility. The invention of the cage-guided needle roller bearing put Schaeffler at the forefront of motion and mobility right from the outset. We design both rotary and linear motion, in automobiles, machines, wind turbines, and many other industrial applications.

This passion for technology and innovation has always been a core element of our DNA, and it is precisely this pioneering spirit, together with our courage and curiosity, that continues to drive us forward. The concept of motion involves more than just mobility. So, our mission goes beyond merely designing the “mobility of the future”, particularly since, from a supplier’s perspective, pioneering motion is about teamwork and partnership.

On the path of digital transformation

There is no escaping the digitalization trend in today’s world. This is literally happening everywhere. State-of-the-art information technologies such as the cloud, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and digital twins offer a host of potential. The increasing merging of the real and digital worlds opens up opportunities for Schaeffler and its customers along the entire value-added chain.

In our implementation of specific digital solutions, we make a distinction between two fundamental approaches. The first approach is the optimization of the value-added chain, internally at Schaeffler and in interaction with our business partners. Secondly, we leverage additional sales potential with digital solutions. Based on new digital concepts, we thus ensure the added value of our existing business models and create a basis for accessing new markets.
