The NIDEC-SHIMPO CORPORATION was originally founded in Kyoto Japan in 1952. Since our inception, we have made every possible effort to improve our manufacturing skill and capabilities, including the advancement of power transmission products to support new technologies and markets.

Over time, within the field of power transmission engineering, NIDEC-SHIMPO has maintained the highest level of skill and production quality throughout the industry. We have earned a reputation as a long-term dependable partner to our customers, and this solid reputation is firmly supported by the many industrial awards we hold, such as the Japanese Machinery Society Award, and Deming Award, among others.
