NSK's strength comes from its consistent "build everything in-house" philosophy; from development to manufacturing, and from jigs to small parts. This enables us to shorten the time to the market, reduce production cost and perform thorough quality assurance.
Quality can be created through process. The essence of the NAKANISHI way of production which has spanned more than 80 years is also exemplified in these words. Our products are created through the most advance production technology and production control techniques, delivering quality that is fit to be called the No. 1 global brand.
Highly rated for their superior quality and reliability and unsurpassed cost performance, NSK's products sell in over 135 countries around the world. Overseas sales now account for 75% of our turnover, and we have become a global player.
Since its foundation in 1930, NSK has been dedicated to high-speed rotary cutting technology and its applications. NSK has grown to be a leading company in the world's dental instrument market with US$163 million sales in 2006.
Environmental issues are a common challenge faced by all people of the world, and we are in an age where initiatives to reduce a company's burden on the environment affect the quality of its management and, in turn, the evaluation of its products. NSK tackled environmental issues early on, and in January 1999 we acquired ISO14001 certification, the global standard environmental management system.
