Corporate Message

Responsive and Creative

“Responsive” expresses NSK ability to react effectively to new opportunities and customer needs while maintaining a sense of harmony with societies and the global environment. More specifically, “Responsive” embodies five concepts:

  1. Resilience
  2. Smoothness
  3. Tenacity and perseverance
  4. Flexibility
  5. Technology

“Creative” reflects our commitment to finding new ways to enhance our products and services as we work to realize the full potential of NSK and society. Creative also affirms the unlimited potential of both the Corporation and its employees. “Motion and Control” portrays new NSK image, a distinct breakaway from its old bearing company image.

The corporate message communicates NSK ideas to clients and the general public and seeks to gain their understanding and support.

The message's intent is to express the Corporation's spheres of activities and its future image.

Corporate Slogan

Corporate slogans encapsulate the attitudes and actions required to realize the ideas in our mission statement. These ideas enhance NSK corporate culture, foster personal development and provide direction for its corporate development.

- Beyond Limits, Beyond Today -

Limits symbolize the restrictions and barriers inherent in all things from individuals to industries and countries. All NSK employees will make these limits the focal point for our enthusiasm and energy, and in the process of overcoming them, create a future for NSK. Today is the immediate. We must strive to see beyond the immediate problem, condition or event, and perceive the long-term challenges and opportunities. Through a long-term vision, we can ensure NSK's prosperity as well as our own growth and personal development.
