Automotive

A trusted leader in OEM bearing products for the biggest names in the industry.

THE MARKET LEADER

NTN holds the largest share of the global market for axle bearings, critical automotive components that enable wheel axles to turn. We’re number two in global market share of constant-velocity joints (CVJs), a key component for vehicle drivetrains.

FOCUS ON EFFICIENCY AND ENVIRONMENT

At NTN, we’re developing smaller, lighter bearings and CVJs that offer lower torque, and we’re stepping up the development of modular products for electrical vehicles. Our goal is to address the latest concerns of the auto industry, such as the need for low-fuel consumption and reductions in CO2 emissions.

LOCAL PRODUCTION AND LOCAL SUPPORT

NTN believes that it is important to manufacture product within in the same market that it is sold. We’ve invested millions of dollars in land, facilities, capital equipment, and labor by providing thousands of domestic jobs for NTN employees, our supplier associates, and joint venture partners in the U.S. and Canada. Our ten North American factories have produced millions of automotive bearing and CVJ units for practically every OEM vehicle assembly plant or Tier 1 operation in the nation, as well as for several overseas markets.

We continue to grow our local footprint with our Automotive Center located near Detroit. Through our local and global network, NTN is dedicated to providing full service capabilities in design, engineering, product validation, sales, and program management. We’re also driven to deliver optimized CVJ and bearing products that support the unique needs of our North American OEM customers—at the right time, the highest quality, and the best price.
