NSK are global leaders in dental handpiece design and manufacturing. The company has been operating for over eighty years and remains committed to its lasting mission statement, “to create brilliant progress.” In this article, we take a look at the history of NSK and evaluate how their origin story has become the foundation of their lasting success.
Where it all began.
In 1930, Keiichi Nakanishi established the first NSK site in Tokyo as “Nakanishi Manufacturing.” Nakanishi’s passion for, and knowledge of, precision engineering led to a focus on micro-manufacturing of the finest quality. Nakanishi created Japan’s first dental rotary handpiece and was determined to develop lasting relationships with his customers. At first, each handpiece was made individually and personally delivered by Nakanishi himself. Even though today high production demands make face-to-face delivery impractical, NSK still strive to have one of the best support systems in place for their customers.
NSK’s commitment to perfection means that attention to every detail during the manufacturing process is paramount. To maintain a high level of production and accuracy, NSK fabricates 90% of all precision parts in-house. Outsourcing is not in their nature. Quality control is taken very seriously, and the sales team’s energy is focused on finding the highest grade of raw material for in-house fabrication. When you purchase an NSK handpiece, you can rest assured that each of its sixty tiny components has undergone stringent testing.
Detailed training & proactive investment.
While the 2300 handpieces that NSK factories produce every day may not be handmade by Nakanishi’s grandson, the current CEO of the company, they are still manufactured with the finest of detail. NSK invest a significant amount of time and money into daily training for over 800 staff in their factories. The company is also continually reinvesting in new technology and hire highly adaptable and motivated staff to keep up with these advancements. NSK is often the first to incorporate new technology into their handpiece designs, constantly improving their products to offer enhanced convenience for their customers.
