About NTN

NTN traces its roots back to 1918 when a group of individuals, including investor Noboru Niwa, sales company Tomoe Trading Co., and engineer Jiro Nishizono, collaborated to create the first-ever NTN ball bearings. The company steadily expanded its operations and achieved significant milestones over the years. By 1939, NTN had established its global manufacturing center, Kuwana Works, which would play a pivotal role in its future growth. In 1954, NTN became the first Japanese industrial manufacturer to receive the esteemed Deming Prize for its exceptional statistical quality control. As the 1950s and 1960s unfolded, NTN continued to thrive by constructing additional factories and expanding sales operations into Europe.

In 1963, NTN Bearing Corporation of America was established to cater to the American market's local sales needs. This move enabled NTN to manufacture a diverse range of products, including ball bearings, spherical, tapered, cylindrical, and needle roller bearings, as well as automotive constant velocity joints. As the company progressed, it acquired the Bower™ brand from Federal-Mogul Corporation in the mid-1980s, enhancing its tapered and cylindrical roller bearings catalog. A decade later, NTN further expanded its product line by acquiring BCA™ from Federal-Mogul, allowing the company to offer automotive clutch release bearings and specialized agricultural bearing assemblies.

NTN's success story extended into the new millennium with the establishment of seven new manufacturing plants in North America. In 2008, NTN completed a phased investment in French bearing manufacturer SNR, securing a controlling stake in the company. SNR's expertise in the aerospace sector and its exceptional spherical roller-bearing products significantly contributed to NTN's ongoing growth. As of today, NTN operates more than fifty plants worldwide and holds the esteemed position of being the third largest bearing manufacturer globally. Notably, 2018 marked the remarkable milestone of NTN's centennial anniversary, commemorating a century of achievements in the industry.
