Mondial Group Expands Asia Operations


Mondial Group Asia Limited is a Korean company belonging to Italy’s Mondial Group, which manufactures and distributes innovative and high-quality power transmission components worldwide. To mark its 75th anniversary in October ’21, Mondial Group established a new company in Daegu, South Korea, to source promising Asian products and promote its own products in the Asian market. Currently, Mondial Group Asia is organising a sales network for Unitec, a manufacturer of special cylindrical roller bearings belonging to Mondial Group. Unitec bearings have been well received by European machine tool and industrial machinery manufacturers for more than 40 years through excellent quality and service.

In the early days of COVID-19, European manufacturers suffered from industrial restructuring due to a sharp drop in local demand and sales. Despite the challenging situation, thanks to continuous investments in the company and through the development of customized solutions and excellent service, Mondial Group succeeded in retaining customers and its market position.

Mondial Group Asia will participate in SIMTOS 2022, Korea’s largest machine tool related exhibition. Being already a supplier to Korea’s largest machine tool manufacturer, we will be proud to introduce our new “Made in Italy” products.

Mondial Group Asia is introducing a new “stud-type track roller” that can withstand heavy rolling and impact loads and minimize the effects of misalignments. We expect it to be an efficient and competitive solution compared to existing products.

“We will introduce the RTB series, a composite roller bearing applied to the rotary table, indexing table, and milling head, which are core products for machine tools; the SRB series, a precision ball screw support bearing; the XRB series, a customized cross roller bearing.”

A technical engineer from Italy will be present during the exhibition to offer technical consultation. After the exhibition, we will be available for customer visit. Also, we have prepared a special gift for visiting customers to our stand.

In order to be chosen by customers, a fully integrated local sales representative must be provided with systematic and efficient customer service and logistics capabilities. In the first phase, the company will focus on promoting Unitec products, but Mondial Group Asia is already considering additional development plans through the sale of other Made In Italy products that will soon be available to the entire Asian market.

The diversification of customers’ suppliers due to existing supply chain instability is a new opportunity for manufacturers that have excellent quality, price competitiveness, and sufficient inventory. Based on these opportunities, we are planning to manufacture robot systems for automation lines as well as Unitec bearings in the Asian market. To this end, Mondial Group recently acquired Smart Factory, an innovative Italian startup company highly specialized in electronic and computer engineering, and Tecno Motion, an Italian startup highly specialized in PLC programming.

“We are working to actively spread brand awareness by utilizing existing references in Europe and Asia. This will be achieved by using online and social media channels and through more traditional marketing channels, such as magazine advertisement and participation to exhibitions. In addition, we are focusing to implement sales strategies that will allow us to develop the business with local distributors.”
