Swedish bearings manufacturer SKF has acquired EFOLEX AB, a Gothenburg, Sweden-based manufacturer of the Europafilter-branded industrial lubrication and oil filtration systems. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

EFOLEX offers offline filtration systems used in process manufacturing and energy industries. It currently has approximately 10 employees.

“In addition to being an interesting stand-alone product, the Europafilter technology is a good strategic fit with SKF RecondOil’s Double Separation Technology offer and will widen our overall lubrication management capabilities,” said Thomas Fröst, president, Industrial Technologies.
