Message from the President

We are constantly reinforcing our comprehensive strengths as a development leader with a global production platform, deeply committed to the further growth of the automobile industry

Today the automobile industry is approaching a major turning point. While the market has reach maturity in Japan and other developed countries, further growth can still be expected on the global stage. Meanwhile a wave of new technologies, such as electric and fuel-cell vehicles, is sweeping the automotive world.

For Nukabe Corporation, this transitional phase represents a sparkling business opportunity. Since its foundation in 1945, the Company has lent crucial support to the advancement of Japan’s automotive sector. Backed by high-precision machine-processing technologies cultivated over the decades, Nukabe is rising to the challenge of these new technologies, developing the products on which they depend. We are also steadily building out a production network that is truly global in scope.

A prominent area of our product-development work involves the development of electronic control components and motor parts, serving the long-term shift toward electronic controls in automobiles. More than ever, customers in the auto industry demand the ability to develop multiple advanced technologies. In response, Nukabe is moving forward with proposal-driven projects conducted jointly with customers and product development through tie-ups with business partners.

Nukabe was an early adopter of the trend toward cross-border production. The globalization of our production platform kicked off in 1987, with the opening of a Nukabe affiliate in Hong Kong. Using the results of these early initiatives as a springboard, Nukabe built plants in the United States and China. We also advanced into Mexico amid the excitement over the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), establishing a framework for accelerating our growth in the vast North American market.

Nukabe does not benefit from capital participation from a major parent company. Our only lifeline is our comprehensive ability to respond smartly to the demands of our customers. Naturally, the key to that ability is none other than the talent and dedication of our people. We cultivate exceptional personnel, such as engineers who can table game-changing technical proposals at the development stage, or technicians who can machine-process the most challenging materials with superb precision. Today and in the future, Nukabe is making a solid contribution to the further development of the automobile industry
