SKF and HAZET, manufacturer of hand tools and workshop equipment, announced the companies formed a technical partnership for the independent automotive aftermarket with the goal of co-developing innovative solutions for the needs of the professional automotive shops.

With more than 270 years of shared market presence, the companies said they “will combine their extensive knowledge and resources in areas such as wheel bearings, steering and suspension, engine, and powertrain applications.”

“This agreement involves a dynamic exchange of technical expertise aimed at providing premium quality tools and solutions for the replacement of the full SKF – aftermarket assortment. At the same time, both companies will engage in cohesive co-communication strategies to strengthen their brand presence and industry recognition,” according to SKF.

“This partnership allows us to offer our customers real added value – premium spare parts always go hand in hand with premium tools. It is important for us to provide our customers with a full service around our products, which of course also includes the right tool solution.
