Established 100 years ago, NSK (Nippon Seiko Kabushiki Kaisha) is a Japanese-listed company that has evolved from a regional ball bearing supplier to a roller bearing specialist and automotive supplier with a global market presence. NSK was founded in 1916 and produced the first ball bearings made in Japan. Since then, the company has spearheaded the development of bearings in Japan. NSK now offers a full range of bearings and sells them worldwide.
NSK bearings have contributed greatly to the growth of many industries and to the advancement of mechanical technology. Today, NSK employs more than 31,000 employees in 30 countries. As per March 2016 NSK achieved sales of 975,3 billion Yen. This result has been driven by ever-increasing investment in research & development, enabling the company to continuously improve the quality of its products and services. This investment supports NSK’s objective of “No. 1 in Total Quality”. Now, the company has the largest share of the bearings market in Japan and is one of the largest bearing suppliers in the world.
RHP was a renowned European bearing manufacturer based in United Kingdom. In 1990, NSK demonstrated its commitment to global expansion by purchasing the UPI group of companies, and – by this – adding the world-renowned brand RHP to its product portfolio.
RHP continues to flourish across the globe underneath the banner of NSK – a synergy of European and Japanese production, engineering, sales and marketing. The RHP brand stands for the principles of NSK's manufacturing and engineering excellence, matching roller bearings made in Europe to our customers' exacting specifications.
