Strengthening our Business Foundations for the Next Leap Forward.
Japan's Bearing Pioneer
Bearings are vital components in improving the efficiency and reliability of machines, contributing to reduced energy loss. They are regarded as a staple of the industrial world and are used in a wide variety of applications.
In 1916, NSK became the first company in Japan to develop and manufacture bearings, and ever since, we have continued to innovate revolutionary technology and products. Over our 100 years of business operations we have actively contributed to worldwide industrial development and environmental preservation. In the early 1960s we set our sights overseas and, to date, have established business locations across 30 countries. We are a world-trusted brand, providing our global customer base with the highest quality and performance.
Corporate Philosophy and NSK Vision 2026
NSK aims to contribute to the well-being and safety of society and to protect the global environment through our innovative technology integrating MOTION & CONTROL™. In 2016 we will celebrate our 100th anniversary, and to mark this event we have designed NSK Vision 2026, an image of the company we aim to become over the next 10 years. Our main message, Setting the Future in Motion, represents our commitment to bringing safety, reliability, and comfort to people's lives-enriching lifestyles and building a brighter future through our products and services.
Becoming an Outstanding Global Company
NSK is carrying out strategies to enhance competitiveness and achieve further growth based on our principles of safety, quality and compliance. By doing so, we aim to develop corporate fundamentals appropriate for a company with net sales of one trillion yen, establishing ourselves as a truly outstanding global company.
Our next stage of growth will focus not only on meeting the expectations of our customers and securing their trust, but also providing new value to society as a whole.
