Our Company > The Group > Company name

Our company name "RKB" puts together the roots of our history and the internationality of our vision. In fact, the acronym "RKB" stands for "Roulement", "Kugellager", and "Bearing". Roulement and Kugellager, respectively the French and German expressions for the English word "bearing", have been chosen because we are the Swiss rolling bearing manufacturer, and in our country French and German represent the two main idioms. Then we have decided to complete our company name with the term "bearing", because English, the most popular language in international relations, well emphasizes the world-class vision and the full-scale global presence of our Group.
