Our Mission

NSK’s products are incorporated into automobiles and industrial machinery to control friction and reduce energy consumption. As such all NSK products contribute to global environmental protection.

Leveraging these product characteristics, we develop environmentally friendly products designed specifically to save energy and resources and to provide comfort for end users.

In addition NSK continues to work with its supply chain to ensure the use of hazardous substances is eliminated and to increase the use of environmentally sustainable raw materials.
