Strengthening Our Business Foundations for the Next Leap Forward.
Japan’s Bearing Pioneer
Bearings make the world go round - literally. Used in almost anything with moving parts, bearings are vital components that improve the efficiency and reliability of machines and contribute to reducing resource and energy consumption. NSK started its journey manufacturing the first ball bearings in Japan in 1916, and has since developed into a global organization researching, designing, and manufacturing Motion & Control™ solutions supporting mobility and industrial applications.
With over 100 years of excellence in engineering, manufacturing, and service, we have actively contributed to worldwide industrial development and the preservation of the environment. In the early 1960s we set our sights abroad, and have established 208 business locations across 30 countries to date. NSK is a world-trusted brand with a global customer base that counts on the highest in quality and performance.
NSK Corporate Philosophy & NSK Vision 2026
NSK aims to contribute to the well-being of society and protect the global environment through our Motion & Control technology. For our 100th anniversary in 2016, we created NSK Vision 2026, which conveys our aspirations to "set the future in motion," and bring safety, reliability, and comfort to people’s lives - enriching lifestyles and building a brighter future through our products and services.
Establishing a Corporate Foundation for Sustainable Growth
With an eye on long-term development of societies around the world, NSK is dedicated to developing a corporate foundation capable of sustainable growth - sustainable for the environment, and for employees. To this end, we have established four core values for NSK: safety, quality, compliance, and environment. By developing advanced technologies and protecting the environment, we are enhancing our capacity for value creation and driving increased sustainability.
