NKE AUSTRIA GmbH – a manufacturer of premium bearings – was founded in 1996 by a group of senior staff members of the former company Steyr Wälzlager. Within a decade, the NKE brand has emerged on the world bearing market as a significant alternative in the premium class.
We offer both standard and special bearings for all industrial applications as well as technical services, including product development, application engineering, consulting, documentation and training.
NKE’s core functions – such as engineering, product development, final processing of components, modular assembly, quality assurance, logistics, sales and marketing – are centralised at our headquarters in Steyr, Austria. The site is certified to ISO9001:2008, ISO14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001. In April 2006, NKE was awarded the Austria Quality Seal in recognition of its high quality standards.
Today, NKE bearings are distributed in more than 60 countries through over 240 distributors and 18 international representative offices.
Since January 2016 NKE Austria has been part of the Fersa Group.
Fersa Group was created through the merger of two European bearing manufacturers: Fersa Bearings in Spain and NKE in Austria. Both are globally active in the design, production and distribution of high quality bearings for the global automotive and industrial markets.
Over 50 years of manufacturing experience and the trust of leading OEMs, Tier 1 and the Aftermarket, endorse our products and services.
The group is present on all five continents; with three state of the art factories, five distribution centers as well as three R&D centers, two in Europe and one in Asia, all of them supporting our growing presence in more than 85 countries.
