Diversity and dedication.
Nisshinbo Automotive Manufacturing, Inc. (NAMI) and Business Developement Center (MI) are part of the Nisshinbo
Group, consisting of 59 subsidiaries and 40 affiliates worldwide.
Nisshinbo was established in 1907, when it was producing yarns and
threads. In the 1940s, Nisshinbo was called upon to manufacture
automotive friction materials and developed a process using woven
fabric embedded with friction material. As the automobile has evolved,
so have Nisshinbo brakes and friction materials to serve diverse
applications in the global transportation market. Nisshinbo continues
the evolution with a library of more than one thousand different
recipes, each specific to customer applications.
North American operations are dedicated
facilities serving OEM transportation manufacturers in the NAFTA
market. NAC, located in Sterling Heights, Michigan, provides team
management, engineering, prototyping, and manufacturing capabilities.
NAMI is Nisshinbo's state-of-the-art facility located in Covington,
