Supplying bearings components to the world that supports the development of the industrial society
Bearings are considered crucial components of the machinery industry and require a stable supply around the world as something essential to the advancement of industrialized societies around the world.

We are supplying bearings to all parts of China through our dealership network and a joint venture with NSK, which manufacturers finished bearings. Moreover, several component processing businesses we have in China serve as a components production base for major bearing plants in the world. Through these, we will continue contributing to the development of regional industries by supporting management of operating companies.

We will contribute to the development of the region’s industry by using this company as a stepping stone to establish partnerships with European enterprises.
