NB Europe – Bringing together Japanese quality and European attitude

As the European subsidiary of Nippon Bearing Co. Ltd, NB Europe B.V. was established in the Netherlands in 2002.

The company moved to its current location in Nieuwe-Vennep, just outside Amsterdam in 2006, one year before the current general manager Tomohiro Mikami joined NB Europe.

“We have seen our business develop steadily in the last few years”, says Mikami. “Our business has grown in line with the industry and we expect this growth to continue”.

NB Europe supplies its customers with high-quality linear motion products, which are vital for the manufacturing sector as they are being used to support linear movement and reduce friction in wide range of applications. These are highly engineered products that can move with highest level of accuracy in the industry.

“Our ‘NB linear-systems’ are comprised of bearings which utilize the rolling motion of ball and/or roller elements”, Mikami explains. “We are able to deliver our strong product line-up to some of industry’s most prominent players”.

The company has its focus on the European market and Germany is the company’s number one export market; accounting for fifty percent of the NB Europe’s business. Building on recent successes, Mikami is looking forward to the company’s next step.

“It is a very exciting time for us as a company as we are currently operating at full capacity”, says Mikami. “We want to become a highly-respected and successful company as we continue to bring together Japanese quality and European attitude.”
