YK Taneja (YKT): In bearings the technology that we follow is of
SKF and NBC. All these bearings are made from bearings steel SAE 52100. We use
the same balls and rollers which the other big bearings manufacturers of the
country are using. Our Bearings are among the best made in the country.

YKT: We cater to all segments across the spectrum.
S M Hussain (SMH): Several OEMs are also using our bearings. I
cannot name them because of the agreement we have signed with them. We have
been running our factory for the last 18 years. We have a 100pc German plant.
We do not have a single Indian machinery in our plant. Recently we launched
products for the two-wheeler segment also. We make ball bearings, cup cone
sets, bushes,etc. We are constantly improving our products. Our R&D team is
constantly improving our products and we are also catering to several export
houses. They are buying as per their
parameters as well as per their drawings. We are there in the OEM as well s
YKT: In fact our first preference was always OEMs. After that we
moved to exports. Today we are exporting to 26 countries. We also participate
in every Automechanika show worldwide. Through these trade shows we have been
able to established every good contacts throughout the globe. We are in North
and South America, Europe, Middle East and the neighbouring countries of India
are mostly using our bearings.
On the overall response at the Auto Expo
YKT: We are happy with two shows—Components and Motor Show—being bifurcated.
Now only select customers are visiting us and they mean business when they
visit us. Earlier what was happening was that a huge crowd used to come and
pick up our pamphlets. We are now getting genuine customers at the show. We
would however prefer if both the shows were a little more closer to each other
in terms of location.
