Niterra is an automotive and technical ceramic supplier, with its corporate headquarters in Nagoya, Japan and sales organisations and production facilities all over the world.
Over the years, the company has established a track record of successfully applying the expertise gained in the field of ceramics to other areas to create new value.
The automotive side of the company specialises in ignition and sensor technology, supplying Original Equipment customers across the globe. For the Aftermarket, its product portfolio comprises spark plugs, glow plugs, ignition coils, caps and leads under the NGK Ignition Parts brand. Under the brand NTK Vehicle Electronics the company offers oxygen sensors (including NOx sensors), exhaust gas temperature sensors (EGTS), exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valves, exhaust gas & differential pressure sensors (EDPS), mass air flow (MAF) and manifold absolute/boost pressure (MAP) sensors as well as engine speed and position sensors.
Niterra’s strong appearance is achieved thanks to its “local” sales policy: Being a global manufacturer and at the same time being present locally and working efficiently. The company headquarters are located in Japan, but Niterra operates on all continents. Around the world there are 69 group companies, 34 production plants and five Technical Centres and three Venture Labs, which embody the progressive approach to business development. This keeps the company close to its partners and customers and ensures that NGK Ignition Parts and NTK Vehicle Electronics products reach their destination quickly and reliably.
At the same time, the company is transforming its organisation and business portfolio in more sustainability-driven directions. Four business fields have been identified for this purpose: Mobility, Medical, Environment & Energy and Communications.
With around 16,200 employees, Niterra’s three distinct business groups - Automotive Components, Technical Ceramics and New Business - generate a total annual turnover of around 4.3 billion Euros worldwide. Niterra is renowned for its outstanding commitment to quality, technology and research & development. Now as then, the ignition and sensor specialist is dedicated to providing customers with state-of-the-art products and services. Among others, Niterra puts its products through their paces in the most extreme and challenging environment possible - racing. The know-how attained and developed on the race course is used to develop and perfect future vehicle technologies. Niterra is proud of its long-time involvement in motorsports. And it is especially proud of how it has met one of the hardest racing challenges: Formula 1.
