History editor
The main history of NSK in China
The relationship between NSK and China originated from mutual exchanges in the 1970s. In 1995, NSK established Kunshan NSK Co., Ltd. in Kunshan, Jiangsu, and began bearing production in China. With the rapid development of China's economy, NSK's business in China is also expanding. There are 11 factories in China engaged in the production of industrial machinery bearings, automotive bearings, auto parts, and precision instrument-related products. They provide high-quality and high-performance products to the Chinese market through 16 sales bases and a solid dealer network. In addition, we established the largest technology research and development center outside Japan to provide technical services for all products. NSK has become the number one bearing manufacturer in China in terms of market share, and the Chinese business has grown into a source of growth for the entire NSK Group. For greater development, NSK will continue to increase investment in the Chinese market.
Reasons for choosing Hefei and positioning of new company products
In China, where the economy is growing rapidly, the government has proposed in the 12th Five-Year Plan to increase domestic demand and strengthen the development of the inland economy. Hefei has become China's largest home appliance production base, and has gathered industries such as automobiles, new materials, new energy, and equipment manufacturing. Hefei has a well-developed transportation infrastructure and has China's top science and technology universities. The government has a complete set of proven support and services. Foreign business system. These are the reasons why NSK chose to set up a new NSK production base in Hefei National High-tech Industrial Development Zone.
Bearings are widely used in automobiles, equipment manufacturing, home appliances, and other industries. It is conceivable that the global demand will continue to expand in the future. In order to achieve its larger and stronger global strategic goals, NSK will further accelerate the development of NSK in China's bearing market in China with the largest demand for bearings through the production of this plant.
NSK China Business Development Strategy
NSK's medium-term plan is to increase China's business scale to 100 billion yen (8 billion yuan) in 2012. According to the development momentum, the plan is likely to be realized one year in advance. In addition, with the rapid growth of the Chinese market, the cutting-edge industry and products, the growth of local enterprises, and the specific implementation of the 12th Five-Year Plan of the Chinese government, China's bearing demand will double in 5 years. This requires a rapid development of the bearing industry. Coupled with the new Hefei plant, NSK's domestic production base will increase to 12, and NSK in China will realize its full-scale production system for industrial machinery bearings, automotive bearings, automotive parts, and precision instrument-related products.
In order to keep pace with China's rapid economic growth, NSK is developing a new development strategy centered on local employees-by 2016 NSK's sales in China will double. In the future, NSK will use local talents as the main force to conduct business operations, quickly respond to the rapidly developing and diversified Chinese market demand, and realize a self-supporting production and sales technology management system, which will truly become a member of Chinese local enterprises.
