The presentation took place July 18, 2023, at NSK’s manufacturing facilities in Franklin, Tennessee.

“It’s an honor to accept this award on behalf of everyone at NSK, from the U.S. team members to our factories around the world who support our local activities,” added Tarek Bugaighis, senior vice president—industrial business unit, NSK Americas. “The collaboration between our companies to serve the industrial market has been tremendous, not only last year, but in the years prior, as well, culminating with this year’s Supplier of the Year award.”
