MOTEK, the annual international trade fair for automation in production and assembly, took place on October 8-11 in the Exhibition Centre in Stuttgart. It is one of the largest fairs in the southern - German speaking - area, exhibiting in 6 halls with more than 800 participating companies. Kuenemund Waelzlager GmbH & Co. KG - an inherent participant to this trade fair - also participated this year by showing a large variety of their know-how and in-house products. Complementary; Kuenemund showed some material that was provided by Koyo, mainly housing units and ball&roller products. This joint activity underlined the close cooperation and partnership between both parties with Kuenemund acting as Koyo's distributor in Southern Germany. Common future activities are already in the planning - also for the next episode of the MOTEK fair - so stay tuned for future events that will be represented together.
This year Koyo will be joining Automechanika in Frankfurt with a small booth to promote its aftermarket automotive product portfolio. Next to Koyo automotive bearings, also automotive steering systems and components branded JTEKT will be promoted. Both JTEKT product families have recently been included in the TECDOC global database to support the AM distribution channels. All JTEKT/Koyo products that are offered to the replacement market, are genuine parts that were originally validated as OEM parts by the carmakers.
We will be happy to meet you at our booth (Hall 1.1, booth C17) should you happen to visit the fair.
On Sunday 17th of June, Toyota won the 86th edition of Les 24 Heures du Mans.
JTEKT, sponsor of the Toyota team congratulates the Toyota Gazoo Racing Team and is honoured to associate its name to this outstanding victory. On board of the hybrid Toyota TS050 (2018 version), team mates, Buemi, Nakajima and Alonso registered the first ever victory of the Japanese brand in the LMP1 (Le Mans Prototypes Hybrid) category.
Already world champion in 2014, Toyota has tried since almost 30 years to write its name to the world's most famous and very competitive race.
Toyota team never gave up to win this race despite some very cruel disillusion like in 2016, when, leading the race, the Toyota car stopped on the track in the last lap of the competition leaving the victory to Porsche 919 hybrid. Now Toyota wrote what is probably the best page of its automobile racing history.
Belagro is an international exhibition focused on the agriculture industry for machinery, equipment and technologies for production, processing, transportation and storage of agricultural products and solutions. The exhibition took place on the 5th until the 10th of June in Minsk, Belarus.
Koyo Distributor Belsnabpodshipnik participated to this fair and offered Koyo the opportunity to join forces in order to promote the Koyo bearings range and show our technologies and capabilities within this area.
The booth was very well visited by representatives who are active in the agricultural industry from CIS - and central Asian countries. We also had the chance to meet with members of the Belarussian ministry of Agriculture. They showed a lot of interest in Koyo bearings and Toyoda Machineworks also a brand of JTEKT Corporation.
Last but not least JTEKT/Koyo was honored to receive a certificate of appreciation from Belsnabpodshipnik for the great business relationship between both companies. We would like to thank Belsnabpodshipnik for their support and trust in our company and products.
‘ A unique combination of business and knowledge sharing’
Seville – Resting on its historical laurels with a warm and sunny glow, Seville is a dazzling city with a lively mix of Renaissance, Gothic, Mudéjar and Modern architecture.
Seville was the venue of our 7th edition of the European Distributor Convention. More than 70 participants from 21 countries attended to this special event.
It was a pleasure to welcome our valued Partners and colleagues at Barceló Sevilla Renacimiento and combine business with the great Spanish culture. The business meeting was a great opportunity for us and our partners to exchange ideas, knowledge and information about our future direction.
Our three days schedule not only included a business meeting but also a very special cultural program from where we could visit Seville and have a great Toro Experience in Huelva. The event was a great chance to show our customers how important they are for us and of course stay up to date about developments at the European bearing market. We would like to all of our business Partners for participating and your very important input during this event.
