NTN’s 100th Anniversary Vision
NTN Corporation celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2018 which has been viewed as the ideal opportunity to express gratitude for the immense loyalty and assistance received over the years. It is also a way to help achieve a “smooth society,” “smooth world” and “smooth lifestyle”. NTN’s vision for the next 100 years is to continue to develop the company’s technical foundation of “Tribology”, expanding into new fields of business, while transforming into a company capable of achieving a sustainable society and contributing to a broad range of stakeholders.
Bearing technology is used to smoothen the rotating parts of any types of machines. With better precise bearing technology, shafts can turn smoother, minimizing energy loss as much as possible. Bearings are thus a technology for saving energy. The technology developed with bearings will advance areas such as smooth electric vehicles, robotics and renewable energy.
NTN will investigate “What NTN can do for society for the next 100 years” and progress forward for the next 100 years.
