On the occasion of its 100th anniversary, NSK has established the NSK Vision 2026 as a statement of what the NSK Group will achieve in the next 10 years. With each individual in the NSK Group taking new steps and setting the future in motion, NSK will grow along with today's ever-changing society. To celebrate its 100th anniversary, NSK is carrying out a variety of projects to create new motion, along with those who are setting the future in motion in a variety of fields.
Part of this endeavor is introducing an original NSK staff exercise program at all branches around the world intended to maintain and improve mental and physical conditions and prevent injury. In order to create an effective and enjoyable way to exercise, the program was developed under the supervision of physical therapist Kazuna Ichikawa by choreographer and dancer Shigehiro Ide. Mr. Ide created the program based on analyses of existing NSK exercises and the various operations at each NSK work site. Additionally, Shuta Hasunuma composed bright music appropriate for a bearing plant that will soothe and energize listeners and expand the imagination.
