On May 26, NTN Corporation (hereafter, NTN) held an opening ceremony in Shanghai, China, for the NTN China Technical Center, the company's first technical development center in China.

 

Approximately 200 visitors were invited to the opening ceremony, including Chinese government officials, members of the China Bearing Industry Association, universities and public offices, and representatives of various other industries.

 

At the opening ceremony, government officials and other members of leading companies in the industry were noted as welcoming NTN's expansion of its technical development capacities in China.

 

Chairman Suzuki from NTN stated in his greeting that “China is experiencing change toward three key models: shifting from foreign demand to domestic demand, shifting from a high-carbon society to a low-carbon society, and shifting from a great power to wealth for all citizens. I would like to see NTN technology being utilized in new and emerging, strategic industries involving energy efficiency and environmental conservation, new materials and the new-energy automobile industry.

 

Following the ceremony, NTN had on show the latest testing and inspection equipment installed at the Technical Center, as well as test drives of electric vehicles (EV) equipped with the In-wheel Motor, Steer-by-wire and other technological systems developed by NTN for next generation EVs.
