Nachi-Fujikoshi's New Production Base:
Major Expansion of Bearing-related Business Operations in India

Nachi-Fujikoshi has established a new subsidiary in India, Nachi KG Technology India Private Limited (NKTI), to begin the local production of bearings for local consumption. This step is being taken to fully promote our bearing-related business in the Indian market, where motor vehicle use is growing, infrastructure is being developed, and industries are modernizing in a country forecast to enjoy extensive economic growth over the medium to long term.

NKTI was launched as a joint venture with KG International FZCO (head office: Dubai), and will be involved in both the manufacture and the sale of bearings.
