Nitta Corporation of America
In 1885, Nitta Corporation entered the Japanese manufacturing market with its first product, a power transmission belt made of leather. Although simple belts such as this initial product remain the company’s core competency today, Nitta Corporation has built a strong reputation as an innovator. That reputation followed it into the United States market in the 1970s and the establishment of Nitta Corporation of America (NCA) in 1980.
Based in Suwanee, Ga., NCA continues to serve industrial customers throughout North America with the same commitment to quality and innovation as its parent company. President Kim Millsaps says the company has a global reach but is one of the few global manufacturers of power transmission solutions that can offer North American customers a direct connection to its products.
