The NBC brand of bearings is manufactured by National Engineering Industries Ltd. (NEI), the largest bearing manufacturer and exporter in India. Through its subsidiary NBC Global, NEI has announced the opening of its Global Technology Center (GTC) in Würzburg, Bavaria (Germany). The technology centre will concentrate on product development, application engineering, and manufacturing technology for the automotive and industrial sectors. In addition to serving as an extension of NBC Bearings in India, it will support the company’s OEM clients based in Europe and around the world by promoting innovation, quick implementation of new ideas, responsiveness to client needs, and market needs. The GTC was introduced during IAA Transportation 2022, which is currently taking place in Hanover, Germany.

“It is a moment of great pride as we start our very first Global Technology Center to focus on customer-centred bearings, an integral component to every kind of machinery,” said Rohit Saboo, President & CEO, National Engineering Industries Ltd. “To have this centre located in Germany, the world’s automotive hub of innovation gives NBC Bearings a strategic advantage of collaborating directly with our global customers which are some of the leading automotive makers offering products tailored to their needs, accelerating response and go to market time,” he added.

Dr. Lokesh Agrawal, Vice President and Head of R&D, National Engineering Industries Ltd. said, “This is an important milestone for NBC as we continue our journey to be a global player. We have put together a team of very talented and accomplished engineers who will be innovating the future products in the automotive and industrial space.”
