    BCA Bearings Announces New Website

    Mt. Prospect, Ill. – NTN, the parent company of BCA Bearings, is pleased to announce the launch of their new website, BCABearings.com. The new website features a clean, new, responsive design, improved functionality and simplified navigation for a more user-friendly experience. The navigation menu at the top of the homepage has been updated with clearer, brand-focused headers. The sub-navigation menus that appear when you click on one of the headers of the main navigation bar have also been reorganized in an effort to make it easier for users to find the information they are seeking.

    One of the key features updated on the BCA website is the part search functionality. Prominently displayed on every page, the part search feature enables you to conduct a search multiple ways, making finding the BCA product you need as easy as possible. Search results display in product groups and can be filtered to show only parts for which you are searching. Once you find the BCA part you are looking for, you will have access to comprehensive specification data, as well as any resources about the part that can be found elsewhere on the website.

    “We are excited to deliver product information and a more user-friendly experience to our visitors,” said Georgianne Dickey, Senior Manager of Product and Marketing Communications. “Additionally, the new website allowed us the opportunity to update our BCA logo and sales collateral in order to better portray the message of the BCA brand. After performing brand recognition studies, we discovered that there was a disassociation between NTN and the BCA brand. Our new logo proudly calls out ‘BCA Bearings by NTN’ to tie BCA to its parent organization and our OE brand.”

    Additionally, the website has improved responsive functionality. Whether on a computer, tablet or smartphone, the new BCA website will adapt to your device’s screen size, giving you an appealing experience no matter how or when you access it. Due to the responsive nature of the new BCA website, we will be discontinuing our mobile app, but all the information that was accessible in the app remains available on the mobile-optimized website.

    NTN 100th Anniversary
    In 1918, NTN began research and engineering of its first bearing products in Japan as Nishizono Ironworks, named after founder Jiro Nishizono. Five years later in 1923, Nishizono Ironworks teamed up with Tomoe Trading Co. to manufacture and sell bearings. Then, in 1927, Noboru Niwa provided capital to establish NTN Manufacturing Co., Ltd. Since then, NTN has continued to advance its research and engineering of bearing products while expanding its global operations.

    Today, NTN is a precision equipment manufacturer that focuses primarily on bearings and has developed it global presence with 219 locations in 33 countries. Our focus on bearings, an “eco product” that reduces energy consumption by reducing friction, lends itself to our goal of developing technologies that make the world function smoothly.

    “When a corporation has been doing business globally for 100 years, it is indeed reason for celebration,” said Pete Eich, President and CEO, NTN Bearing Corporation of America (NBCA). “We at NBCA are proud to do our part and will continue to do so as NTN marches onward with the goal of expanding its contribution to the realization of a smooth-running society, even as both society and business continue to change drastically.”

    As the first bearing manufacturer to be awarded the prestigious Deming Prize for recognition of its quality products and systems, NTN bearings are often selected by world leading companies for use in applications such as automobiles, railroad cars, construction machinery, aircraft, medical equipment and more. In the automotive field alone, we enjoy the largest global market share of hub bearings and the second-largest global share of drive shaft bearings.
