In order to add convenience to customers and protect that investment, NSK is using technology that allows customers to identify and reference the manufacturing characteristics of individual bearings.

Established almost 100 years ago, NSK (Nippon Seiko Kabushiki Kaisha) is a Japanese-listed company that has evolved from a regional ball bearing supplier to a roller bearing specialist and automotive supplier with a global market presence. Today, NSK employs more than 28,500 employees in 29 countries. As per March 2013 NSK achieved a turnover of 6,1 billion Euros.

This investment supports NSK's objective of "No. 1 in Total Quality". In addition to a complete rolling bearing portfolio, NSK develops and manufactures precision components and mechatronic products, as well as systems and components for the automotive industry, including wheel bearing units and electric power-steering systems.
