Schaeffler has acquired Bega International B.V. (Bega), a manufacturer of special tools for mounting and dismounting rolling bearings.

Bega tools are used in the production and maintenance departments of MRO and OEM companies. Bega exports to more than 60 countries and provides custom solutions to a wide range of industries, including wind, rail, mining and steel.
