IKO Nippon Thompson developed Needle Roller Bearings first time in Japan using its own technology, and used that advanced technology as a foundation for entering into the field of linear motion rolling guides (Linear Way Series and Mechatronics Series).
Currently, we are supporting the development of technology with the first-of-its-kind C-Lube Maintenance Free Series and a rich array of other creative products that respond to diversifying customer needs.
Many customers choose the IKO brand because of its reputation for quality, but our other strengths include advanced technological capabilities (we were the first company in Japan to develop Needle Roller Bearings using in-house technology) and our customer support, paying careful attention to the needs of our customers. Through IKO, Nippon Thompson is committed to our customers and other stakeholders, promising high quality and unique value in order to respond to individual needs. Our strength lies in our commitment to our management philosophy of being "a technology development-based company that contributes to society".
