Nord France Invest

100 years and new investments

Japan’s NTN group, which specialises in making steel automotive parts, this year celebrates its 100 year anniversary and is continuing to invest in its sites, especially in Crézancy in Aisne. The group’s “Forging the future” plan provides for an investment of €50 million, divided into three parts:

  • €4 million between 2018 and 2020
  • €10 million from 2020 to 2021
  • €36 million up to 2031

This investment is expected to enable modernisation of the site (reconstruction of part of the plant, addition of 2 more forges) and the hiring of new employees, with around 10 in 2018.

Increased performance

The overall future project of the Japanese group has four key areas: human resources, innovation, sustainable development and performance, with the object of making NTN an industry leader. Following its investments in Hauts-de-France, the group hopes to reach a production level of 10 million transmission parts a year and the production of 12 million parts for the group’s other plants worldwide by 2031.
