Strengthening Our Business Foundations for the Next Leap Forward
Japan's Bearing Pioneer
Bearings are vital components in improving the efficiency and reliability of machines, contributing to reduced energy loss. They are regarded as a staple of the industrial world and are used in a wide variety of applications.
In 1916, NSK became the first company in Japan to develop and manufacture bearings, and ever since, we have continued to innovate revolutionary technology and products. Over our nearly 100 years of business operations we have actively contributed to worldwide industrial development and environmental preservation. In the early 1960s we set our sights overseas and, to date, have established business locations across 30 countries. We are a world-trusted brand, providing our global customer base with the highest quality and performance.
Corporate Philosophy and NSK Vision 2026
NSK aims to contribute to the well-being and safety of society and to protect the global environment through our innovative technology integrating MOTION & CONTROL™. In 2016 we will celebrate our 100th anniversary, and to mark this event we have designed NSK Vision 2026, an image of the company we aim to become over the next 10 years. Our main message, Setting the Future in Motion, represents our commitment to bringing safety, reliability, and comfort to people's lives-enriching lifestyles and building a brighter future through our products and services.
Becoming an Outstanding Global Company
NSK is carrying out strategies to enhance competitiveness and achieve further growth based on our principles of safety, quality and compliance. By doing so, we aim to develop corporate fundamentals appropriate for a company with net sales of one trillion yen, establishing ourselves as a truly outstanding global company.
Our next stage of growth will focus not only on meeting the expectations of our customers and securing their trust, but also providing new value to society as a whole.
President & CEO
NSK celebrated its 100th anniversary on November 8, 2016. The fact that we have been able to conduct successful business operations over a century is a strong testament to solid support received over the years from all stakeholders, including customers and the local community. For this I offer my sincere gratitude.
Ever since developing the first bearings in Japan, we have leveraged our proprietary technology to supply customers in a wide range of fields with bearings and other machine components, thereby supporting industrial growth and contributing to society through the creation of a safe, reliable and comfortable world.
To mark the company’s 100th anniversary, we contemplated the kind of company we would like to become in the future, culminating in NSK Vision 2026. This vision specifies the direction we will aim for and the goals we will strive to accomplish over the next 10 years, and will serve as a guiding principle for the realization of our mission statement.
By repeatedly take on challenges, no matter how small, the NSK Group’s 30,000 employees will work together as one to elicit the company’s all-round strength. United in this way, we are determined to continue striving to make people’s lives safer, more reliable, and more comfortable—enriching lifestyles—to build a brighter future through the products we develop for our customers.
As we consider the prospects for our next 100 years, we look forward to the challenges that lie ahead, knowing that our accumulated experience and expertise comprise the very foundations of our enduring success. In facing the myriad of future challenges, we ask for the ongoing understanding and support of all stakeholders to ensure the NSK’s ongoing success.
