So far, there are nearly 20 Fortune 500 enterprises in Anting, which have brought in to the town many innovative technologies and talented people. The SKF (Shanghai) Auto Technology Co, a venture of Sweden’s SKF Group, has created a BAR-0200A bearing product.

Featuring asymmetric roller path design, the new bearing will undertake elastic force when the pressure changes, which not only extends the service life, but also contributes to smoother running when the car turn a corner. Now the product is applied to the large family cars of Shanghai Volkswagen, Buick and Chevrolet.

As a cooperative partner of well-known automakers such as Ferrari, Daimler, Chrysler and BMW, SKF has been leading global brand in auto parts technology. The SKF's Jiading Campus opened following a 700 million-yuan investment in Anting in June 2014. It has recruited 600 R&D workers and is expected to incubate 15 patented technologies, according to Xu Wei, the manager of SKF's manufacturing plant.

Furthermore, the town will continue to promote the construction of a technological innovation harbor in SAIC and speed up the development of new energy vehicle industry and the development of smart cars in the next stage.
