The products being produced at the new sinter plant are said to be high-precision, high-strength and technologically demanding components used in engines and transmissions for passenger cars. “These new technologies significantly reduce fuel consumption and emissions in passenger cars,” said Harald Neubert, CEO of the Miba Sinter Group.

Miba Bearings US is also launching a new $14 million production line for high-performance engine bearings for trucks. The new production line has a yearly output of 4 million parts. In the future, about 70,000 engines per year will be equipped with main and conrod bearings from the new production site in the USA.

“Our clear strategic orientation is toward high technology," said Peter Mitterbauer, Chairman of the Miba Management Board. "The two plants in McConnelsville, with currently around 260 employees, comprise an important production center for Miba and will further grow. These high-performance sites secure our long-term ability to provide high-quality products to our American customers,”
