Thoughtful engineering has been the cornerstone of our manufacturing solutions, since first producing machines in 1941 as Toyoda Machine Works. Originally manufactured for the production lines of a major Japanese automotive company, Toyoda grinding machines were built to be ruggedly tough in high-production environments.
Over the years, we have held ourselves to this level of expert craftsmanship to provide shops with the highest quality standards. In 1968, we expanded our lineup to horizontal machining centers, and later incorporated automation systems, vertical machining centers, turning lathes, bridge mills and boring mills into JTEKT Machinery Americas Corporation's product offerings.
We understand tight tolerances, superior speed, and peak performance. Every detail is carefully considered – from the solid cast iron bases to the operator-friendly ergonomic design – to help maximize production across metal cutting industries.
JTEKT machinery is engineered for innovators, and built with the speed, strength, and capacity to achieve manufacturing success. From job shop applications to high-volume production, JTEKT solutions exceed quality and precision expectations.
The JTEKT Group operates over 150 affiliates with about 50,000 associates, including JTEKT Machinery Americas Corporation. By proactively hiring and developing outstanding personnel worldwide who will shape the future of monozukuri, as well as promoting locally oriented procurement and production, JTEKT Group aims to contribute to the development of the local industries in each country.
JTEKT is a global company with around 60 percent of its personnel working outside Japan. In order to strengthen our worldwide ties and promote diversity, JTEKT aims to continuously keep improving the management and education structure of globally minded and motivated personnel.
At JTEKT Machinery, ingenuity starts here. We embrace a challenging yet collaborative environment where we work together cross-functionally to accomplish the organization’s goals. While we work hard, we like to step back occasionally and have some fun with company activities, such as golf outings, frequent summer BBQs, and our holiday parties.
