NTN Bearing Corp. of Canada is relocating its Canadian corporate head office to a new, larger facility at the end of the year. The new location is at 305 Courtneypark Drive W., Mississauga, Ont. The current facility is nearby at 6595 Ordan Drive.

The last day of business at the current location will be Weds. Dec. 24, 2003. On Mon. Jan. 5, 2004, the new location will open for business at 9:00 a.m.

The new facility is approximately one kilometre west of the existing site, and will provide additional expansion room as well as a more efficient layout for a state-of-the-art warehouse management system.

“The new distribution centre will be designed to support national distribution of all NTN products across Canada and will employ a new order selection system that will fill customer orders with high-tech speed, efficiency and accuracy,” said NTN Canada president Fred Hagino.

NTN Bearing Corporation started operations in Canada over 35 years ago, in 1968, in Toronto. Throughout the late 1990s, NTN continued to expand with the industry. “Today NTN has come to represent excellence in the manufacturing of quality bearings and constant velocity joints, and NTN Canada has positioned itself to remain a leader in this industry,” said Hagino.

The company’s parent was founded in 1918. NTN manufactures a wide range of ball and roller bearings, serving the automotive, industrial and recreational markets. It has production facilities in several countries throughout the world, including Germany, Japan, Taiwan, Australia, Canada and the United States.
