Since its founding in 1980 by entrepreneur Richard Ennen, NN has grown from a single ball and roller factory into a global diversified industrial company. Focusing initially on industrial and automotive applications, NN quickly established itself as a trusted supplier, and began to seek out new areas in which to grow.
Through a series of strategic acquisitions, NN has shifted its focus from rolling elements to the five diversified
end markets it serves today—electrical, automotive, general industrial, medical, and aerospace and defense. With state-of-the-art capabilities, innovative engineered solutions, and a global reach, a transformed NN stands ready to leverage end market megatrends and cross-segment efficiencies, serving a diverse customer base and fueled by a strong financial structure that provides stability and flexibility to facilitate future growth.
