SKF enters strategic supply partnership with PROK
Bearing supplier SKF Australia has entered a long-term strategic supply partnership with PROK Conveyor Components, a conveyor OEM, in a milestone that marks over 40 years of association between the two companies.
PROK Conveyor Components is part of NEPEAN Conveyors and has a long history of manufacturing conveyor components for local and international markets dating back to 1948. The company is known for its durable, heavy-duty conveyor components, including its conveyor roller offering for which SKF has supplied a variety of bearings. It has designed and manufactured conveyor components for mines, ports and large industrial plants throughout Australasia and the Americas.
Under the terms of the SKF Equipped Programme agreement, SKF has now secured a supply contract with PROK for a range of components. These include deep groove ball bearings for PROK’s conveyor idler units plus Explorer Class spherical roller bearings in sealed and non-sealed versions, together with various sleeves and housings for PROK’s conveyor pulley offering.
These SKF components have been chosen by PROK for their performance in the company’s own equipment, as well as their wider applications in other environmentally challenging quarrying, mining, steel and similar heavy industrial operations throughout the world.
“The newly launched SKF Equipped Programme that we have just established with our client, PROK, is the first of its kind for SKF in Australia,” said Vis Reddy, Industrial Business Development Manager at SKF Australia.
“It’s testament to the long and successful relationship that we have enjoyed over the past 40 years with this leading Australian conveyor OEM. We look forward to a continuing engineering partnership with PROK as the company progresses its highly successful product development program.”
