GENEVA, Switzerland, March 18, 2024 DuPont (NYSE: DD) and Menatek Defense Technologies today announced that they have entered into an agreement related to the global bearing market. This collaboration between the two companies involves NAZ Bearings®, an innovative bearing that is self-lubricating and maintenance free.

"This collaboration between the two companies will elevate customer satisfaction to the highest level by bringing together the latest technologies and best practices in the global bearing industry,” said Naz Ünal, Chief Strategy Officer at Menatek Defense Technologies. “Because NAZ Bearings® are simply the most durable self-lubricating spherical bearings in its field."

This agreement enables both companies to provide a broad product range for users in the defense industry, as well as for those in the aerospace, high- speed train, tram, metro, wind turbine, and industrial platforms. Through collaborative R&D and strategic marketing efforts, both companies will continue to enable next generation bearing technologies for customers.
