NSK Concludes a Capital Tie-Up with MOS Group

NSK China brng manf

NSK Ltd. (NSK; Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and CEO: Norio Otsuka) announced today that it concluded an agreement on February 2, 2013 to establish a capital tie-up in the bearings business with Ningbo MOS Group Corporation Limited (Headquarters: Zhuangshi Zhenhai District, Ningbo City, Zhejiang Province, China; President: Li Gang; hereafter, “MOS”), a leading private bearing manufacturer in China. Through this agreement, NSK will acquire a 25% stake in MOS. Details are as follows.

1. Reasons for the capital tie-up.

NSK commenced manufacturing of bearings in China in 1995 with the establishment of Kunshan NSK Co., Ltd., located in greater Shanghai. Since then, NSK has expanded its business in China in line with the country’s economic growth, setting up 12 factories. NSK currently manufactures and sells industrial machinery bearings, automotive bearings, automotive components, as well as precision machinery and parts in China.
In recent years, the high-performance bearing market, which is dominated by Japanese, U.S. and European bearing manufacturers, as well as the so-called high-volume market in China have been growing rapidly.
In this context, NSK acquired a 10% stake in Gongzhuling Bearing Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Gongzhuling City, Jilin Province, China; President: Li Gang; hereafter, “Gongzhuling Bearing”), an automotive bearing manufacturer in the MOS Group. Both NSK and Gongzhuling Bearing have been promoting their business partnership to manufacture products for the Chinese market.
On this basis, NSK has recently decided to further expand and strengthen its business alliance with MOS, which is a highly competitive manufacturer of small-size bearings and other products.

2. Objectives of the capital tie-up.

By strengthening its business alliance with the MOS Group, a leading private conglomerate based in China, NSK intends to pursue the manufacturing operations required to make a full-scale entry and expansion into the high-volume market in China, as well as to build on its know-how in relation to the market while developing a network of suppliers.

3. Summary of the capital tie-up.

After concluding the capital tie-up agreement, NSK will acquire 25% of MOS’s outstanding shares (valued at about 1 billion yen), and form a capital tie-up in the bearing business, encompassing manufacturing and sales.

4. Future outlook.

The capital tie-up is expected to improve the competitiveness of both companies, especially over the medium and long term. Its impact on NSK’s financial results in the current fiscal year is expected to be insignificant.

Comment from NSK President and CEO Norio Otsuka.

“In September 2012, NSK acquired a stake in Gongzhuling Bearing, an automotive bearings manufacturer in the MOS Group. This has allowed us to gain know-how on manufacturing for the high-volume market as well as market information in China. As a result, we have achieved numerous successes in developing new markets in the country while carrying out locally based business activities. Now, by deepening our alliance with MOS, a domestic private company that is highly regarded in China for its expertise in manufacturing small-size bearings, we intend to further expand and enhance collaboration between both companies. In this way, NSK will be able to respond to a wide range of market needs, spanning from the world’s best-quality high-performance bearings that we have traditionally specialized in, to the high-volume markets of emerging countries like China, where demand will rise dramatically in the future. At the same time, MOS will be able to increase its competitiveness and build a global brand by taking advantage of NSK’s technological capabilities and quality control. Moreover, we expect the capital tie-up to help accelerate the growth of both companies in tandem by enabling NSK and MOS to draw on each others’ strengths.”
Comment from MOS President Li Gang.

“We are extremely honored to proceed with this tie-up with NSK, a company whose brand strength and expertise is well-known around the world. In China, the top priority placed on cost performance in past years has given way to demands for bearings that perform at a much higher level in terms of higher durability and their contribution to saving energy. Through our tie-up with NSK, we look forward to improving our product quality and competitiveness in the future.“

About the NSK Group

Established in 1916, NSK produced the first ball bearings made in Japan. Over its history, NSK has developed a wide range of bearings and supplied them around the world, making significant contributions to the development of industry and advancements in machinery. At present, NSK holds the top market share in Japan and the third largest share in the world for bearings.
By applying its high precision processing technologies refined over many years of manufacturing bearings, NSK began diversifying into automotive products and precision machinery and parts at an early stage. The NSK Group has been aggressively expanding beyond Japan since the 1960s, and currently operates 63 production sites in 12 countries.
With roots in China stretching back over 40 years, when it began providing technologies to the country’s state-owned industries, NSK now has 12 production sites and 19 sales branches in China. As it seeks to maximize the number of its technological centers outside Japan, NSK is establishing a business network in China that can operate independently and continue contributing to the development of diverse industries throughout the country, including automobiles and industrial machinery. NSK presently holds the top market share for bearings in China, and is aiming to double the current level of its sales in China to 200 billion yen by 2016, when it will celebrate its 100th anniversary.

About the MOS Group.

The MOS Group is a privately operated bearing manufacturer based in Ningbo City, Zhejiang Province, China. With seven factories across the country, it holds the top market share in China for small-size bearings made for office automation (OA) equipment. The MOS Group is widely recognized globally, as it exports large amounts of bearings to the United States, Europe, and many other countries.
In recent years, the MOS Group has been undertaking mergers and acquisitions to aggressively enter markets for large-size bearings used for automobiles, machine tools, wind power generation facilities and other industries, thereby establishing itself as a top corporate group in China’s bearing market.
In September 2012, NSK acquired a 10% stake in Gongzhuling Bearing Co., Ltd., an automotive bearings manufacturer in the MOS Group.

This article, press release or announcement is translated from BearingNEWS (www.bearing-news.com) publications or from China Bearing Commercial Community (CBCC) sources哥德堡——中国对瑞典斯凯孚(SKF)公司轴承的需求量日益增加。得益于人们对电动汽车需求量的增加以及供应商对快速变化的汽车技术的适应,斯凯孚目前每月拿下至少一笔新订单。 斯凯孚汽车业务总裁Bernd Stephan称,虽然欧洲电动汽车的销量也在增加,但中国电动汽车的销量正呈井喷式增长。“我们在这一领域获得了大量新业务……如此多的项目突如其来,我们在持续地与这些客户洽谈。”Stephan说。 电动汽车对轴承制造商的影响巨大,这是因为电动汽车通常使用的轴承数量约为内燃机汽车使用轴承数量的一半。在斯凯孚专注于轴承和密封件等零部件的同时,包括德国舍弗勒集团在内的竞争对手们正在开发完整的电驱动产品系列。由于斯凯孚只有4%的产品用于内燃机,而轮毂轴承是其销量最多的产品,斯凯孚在很大程度上受到了保护。“我们在内燃机汽车市场中失去的业务,正在电动汽车市场中赢回来。”Stephan表示。处于两者之间的更多混合动力车的出现,对我们也是有利的。 汽车轴承市场竞争日益激烈,客户对价格越来越敏感,再加上中国竞争对手的崛起,这些都使人愈加担忧斯凯孚的长期盈利能力。Stephan称,斯凯孚可以使用更经济的钢铁和不同的部件来降低非高端轴承的制造成本。“我们的生产率是很高,并且不只在欧洲生产轴承。” 斯凯孚汽车业务还与日本NTN、NSK和JTEKT公司以及中国人本集团等公司展开竞争,其销售额占到了斯凯孚2017年销售额的31%。 尽管汽车业务一直是集团担忧的问题,但2015年的重整计划已经开始发挥作用,在第一季度几乎实现了8%的利润目标。重整计划主要针对高度定制的轴承和密封件。 展望未来的完全无人驾驶汽车市场,Stephan认为这会带来更多变化,由于轮毂轴承使用强度增加,轮毂轴承可能需要有更长的使用寿命。“现在,人们还意识不到无人驾驶意味着什么。理论上说,车辆数量将降低到现在的三分之一。”Stephan还补充道,现在为此做好准备非常重要。 2016年,斯凯孚汽车产品销售额达到了18.4亿美元,名列《欧洲汽车新闻》全球前100名供应商名单第86名。
