Kunshan City officials and NSK employees attended the ground-breaking ceremony

Major investment by NSK, one of the world's leading manufacturers of bearings and linear motion solutions, will see the company expand its R&D centre and headquarters in China. Located in Kunshan City, near Shanghai, a recent ground-breaking ceremony marked the start of construction. The development will further strengthen NSK’s presence in China and enhance its competitive edge.

The expanded building, located in the Huaqiao Economic Development Zone of Kunshan City will offer a total floor space of approximately 21,000 m2, with construction scheduled for completion in August 2024. Aside from enhancing NSK’s presence in China, the investment will see the addition of more employees and broader research capabilities in support of local technology development.

NSK's R&D base in China provides technical support for automotive and industrial machinery projects across the country. Expanding these facilities falls in line with the company’s mid-term management plan.

Speaking at the ground-breaking ceremony, NSK China President and CEO, Yu Guoping, said: “Through this expansion NSK will develop technologies and products at high speed, with advanced methods and at competitive cost, meeting the need of customers in the Chinese market. We can enhance our R&D of cutting-edge technologies in the fields of industrial machinery, automotive bearings and automotive steering.”

In particular, NSK China will focus on the development of new technologies and products related to automotive electrification and digitalisation, autonomous driving, CNC machine tools, high-speed rail, wind power, robotics, and medicine, among others.

Yu Guoping added: “By combining NSK's core technologies with digital technologies, the company will provide high-quality, efficient solutions for China's industrial development. In addition, we will further contribute to the country’s modernisation and sustainability, as well as the economic development of Kunshan City.”
