NASCO Ribbon Cutting Turns Over a New LEAF® in Bowling Green

nhk 300BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- (6/18/13) - Bowling Green area community leaders, company officials and Japanese Consul General Motohiko Kato gathered at 11:00 a.m. CDT to officially open NASCO's new 50,000 square-foot advanced manufacturing facility that produces the essential motor core components for the Nissan LEAF® 100% electric, zero-emission automobile.

At today's ribbon cutting ceremony for NASCO's newest facility, Japanese Consul General Kato noted, "NASCO has been a critical supplier to automobile manufacturers operating through the United States. And the quality of their products can be seen in this facility's specialized equipment and highly-trained workforce."
 
Following the ribbon-cutting, NASCO's President Hidefumi Yoshimura led approximately 80 guests on a "no photos allowed" tour of the facility's state-of-the-art precision machining, grinding, and finishing areas. "The micron-level tolerances we achieve allow for electric and hybrid motor vehicles to weigh less and be optimally efficient," Takashi Kayamoto, President of NHK Japan's Spring Division explained, adding, "We are very proud to be able to make these precision parts in Bowling Green, and we appreciate all the support we have received from Bowling Green over the years."
 
"We take tremendous pride that NHK Japan has entrusted its Bowling Green team with the complexity and care required to produce such a high-precision component for Nissan," observed Brad Howard, Chair of the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce Board. "This expansion is important because of the state-of-the-art technology involved and the skill levels employed to making a zero-fault-tolerant, high value components."
 
"NASCO was the very first Japanese automotive supplier to establish itself in Bowling Green 27 years ago," recalled Bowling Green Mayor Bruce Wilkerson. "They were not afraid to break a new path for subsequent Japanese companies to locate in our community, and the innovation represented by this advanced manufacturing facility is an equally path-breaking accomplishment."
