NSK 2020 Supplier of the Year Award

NSK has been named 2020 Supplier of the Year by Motion Industries Inc., a distributor of maintenance, repair and operation replacement parts and provider of industrial technology solutions. NSK began manufacturing bearings in Japan in 1916, and today provides motion and control solutions for mobility and industrial applications globally. 

The award recognizes companies that have shown exceptional commitment to Motion through quality products and services. Scores in Motion’s Supplier Stratification rating system also play a part in selecting a winner. The rating system evaluates each supplier’s performance in a number of supply chain, marketing and field support categories.

“2020 was a tough year in general, so for NSK to move to the top of the ranks is impressive,” said Joe Limbaugh, Motion executive VP of supply chain, operations support, marketing and enterprise excellence. “Our standards as measured through our supply chain process are rigorous, and improvement takes understanding, dedication and overall hard work. NSK rose to the occasion and we are proud of their accomplishments. Suppliers who finished in our Top 50 are the ‘best of the best’ in our industry.”

“NSK is committed to delivering value to our customers above and beyond being experts in our own business by demonstrating expertise in our partners’ and customers’ business,” said Reid Jajko, VP aftermarket business unit, NSK Americas. “Our success is not defined by the sale of a bearing; it is defined by our ability to positively impact our partners’ operations. I cannot imagine a greater affirmation of our commitment than to receive this acknowledgement from Motion.”
