Kaman Aerospace Opens New German Bearings Factory

Kaman Aerospace Group has opened a new RWG bearings factory in Hochstadt, Germany. Operations were transferred to the new facility between March and April. The plant is now at full production capacity. Acquired in 2002, RWG has been integrated in the Kaman Specialty Bearings and Engineered Products division. Since acquisition the division has tripled its revenue and outgrown an original site in Dachsbach. The new facility allows room for additional expansion and innovation in operations. RWG will change its name this year to RWG Germany GmbH from RWG Frankenjur-Industrie Flugweklager GmbH in order to maintain the company’s identity.
