In 2019, the most important exhibition in Central Europe dedicated to railway transportation products and services, called Czech Raildays, was held for the 20th time. It took place during the days 11th to 13th of June in freight depo area of the Ostrava central railway station.

More than 190 exhibiting companies attended this exhibition and out of the total number of participants, which was more than 6000, 85% accounted for professional public. KINEX BEARINGS, a.s. was one of these exhibitors just like in the recent years, since it is the industry where the company’s largest production portion is focused on. We displayed mainly bearings for personal transportation and traction motors of railway vehicles. Presentation of the company and its products on the Central Europe region is imperative, which is why the attendance on this exhibition was of very high importance to KINEX BEARINGS, a.s. Over the course of the exhibition, many business meetings of our representatives occurred both with our recurring customers as well as with new, potential European clients.

 

KINEX BEARINGS views the Indian market as very important and perspective. Bearings from the former Czechoslovakia have had a good name in India throughout history and KINEX BEARINGS tries to develop various activities on this market. Business trips to India are now realized annually with the purpose of meetings with our business partners as well as to organize conferences for textile bearings and standard bearings end customers. The conferences are focused on the product, brand and company presentation. In 2018, the attendance included Sales director of KINEX BEARINGS - P. Schnelly, Sales manager for textile bearings - P. Barka and Sales manager for standard bearings - M. Červeňan. They were joined by our representative on the Indian market, A. Vatsraj. The meetings were dedicated to the presentation of advantages, technical parameters and new technologies used in the production of original bearings KINEX. The personal contact and a permanent presence on this territory are a premise for effective support of our partners and continual development of sales growth.

 
 

On July 2018, KINEX BEARINGS, a.s. became a shareholder of the company KINEX – RUS. Headquartered in Moscow, KINEX - RUS is an exclusive distributor of KINEX bearings for the railway industry not only in the Russian federation, but in the countries of Eurasian economic union as well (Belorussia, Kazakhstan, Armeniaand Kirgizstan).

KINEX BEARINGS, a.s. took this step based on a long-term successful cooperation with its distributor in the Russian federation, and also by the mutual interest to strengthen the brand KINEX on the Russian market. Gaining a share in KINEX – RUS has created a new premise for smooth and gradually increasing volumes of bearings supplied by KINEX to meet the requirements of OEM market, as well as the aftermarket. KINEX BEARINGS, a.s. currently provides above-the-standard support and after sale services not only for its distributor – the subsidiary, but also to the railway industry end-users of bearings KINEX, including technical consulting, service and training. On the other hand, due to the direct contact, KINEX BEARINGS, a.s. expects to better understand the needs and requirements of the end-users of bearings KINEX which will be the impulse to innovate and develop new bearings for the specific needs of this market.

The goal and effort of KINEX BEARINGS, a.s. will be to follow the historic above-the-standard cooperation and supply of bearings for customers on these markets, which will evolve on the basis of the KINEX bearings reliability and high quality as well as the after sale services for customers of the Eurasian economic union.

 

With the arrival of the year 2018, every specialist and fan of railway industry could once again look forward to the most important trade fair for railway suppliers, which is InnoTrans. It is characteristic for this platform to be held every even-numbered year on the grounds of Berlin exhibition – always giving the exhibitors enough time to prepare. During 18.9.-21.9.2018 was therefore every manufacturer connected to the railway technology able to present its innovative transportation technologies, be it their newest vehicles, railway vehicles, components, transportation technologies or systems.

InnoTrans has without a doubt become the biggest show of transportation technology in the world. This fact was observable even during 2018. The number of participated exhibitors has reached 3 062 companies, making it 57 more than in year 2016, and as every even-numbered year – we, KINEX BEARINGS, a.s., joined as well. The international character of this trade fair has secured a high international exhibitor participation which accounted for 62% of the total exhibitors (1 910 companies). On top of that, the InnoTrans of Berlin captured the interest of 161 157 visitors from 149 different countries all over the world.

To exhibit on this trade fair is possible in the available halls by the fair or even directly on their railways – always depending on the shown product or technology. Our bearing assortment was displayed in Hall 20, in a stand with 60 square meters area. It wasn’t however only the exposition of our current products for railway personal and freight transportation together with freight wagon axleboxes, but we also displayed a sample of our new product TBU – tapered bearing unit for railway axles.

KINEX BEARINGS, a.s. as a company that only recently celebrated its 110 yearlong tradition has historically already passed quite a few important milestones. Several decades of experience with rolling bearings design and production reflects on today’s leading place of the company when it comes to the manufacture and distribution of these products, worldwide. The company has gone through multiple important moments during the years that added up over the time, which was quite a lot. The year 2018 gives us the opportunity to remember several dates important for our company in the form of jubilees.

Year 1948 – The first moment to remember is also one of the most important ones for our company, autumn of 1948. It has been an unbelievable 70 years since the celebratory excavation and the construction of the production plant for rolling bearings in Kysucké Nové Mesto. This important milestone of our history contributed to the production of the first ball bearing manufactured in Slovakia, two years later in 1950, designated 6204.

Year 1953 - Production plant in Kysucké Nové Mesto as a company expansion also enriched our options to evolve the variety of our assortment. Five years after laying the corner-stone, the portfolio of the production plant in Kysucké Nové Mesto widened by single-row cylindrical roller bearings. Thanks to that, 65 years ago the company found itself in a strong mechanical engineering position as it was able to offer both ball and cylindrical roller bearings.

Year 1958 – New assortment however wasn’t the only memorable event connected to the plant construction in Kysucké Nové Mesto. In 1958, dating back ten years after the foundation of the plant and five years after the start of cylindrical roller bearings production, an independent research and development department was established in the company complex. Today it marks 60 years since the first innovative projects of our company conducted in Kysucké Nové Mesto production plant.

Year 1968 – A couple of years later, the assortment expanded once more. It was exactly during the fourth quarter of 1968 when the company started producing the first type of special double-row ball bearings for the textile open-end spinning machines, in Bytča production plant. After years of successful bearing development in this field and our current decisive market position, we can now speak of a 50 year long experience with special bearings production for textile industry applications.

Year 1978 – The last milestone to remember this year is also the youngest. 1978 was important through its connection to the beginning of the production of special water pump bearings for combustion engines of automobiles. Our portfolio for this segment is currently made of various technological capabilities but our first products ever produced for these applications were special double-row bearings, manufactured in Bytča production plant 40 years ago.

We can reminisce about the defining events of building the tradition of our company through these moments of 2018. Let us recollect on the years of success and development of our company while allowing ourselves an equally varied future.
