Known for its innovative technology, NGK has been an industry leader in providing spark plugs, ignition wires, and other related products. Aimed at developing ignition components that match the country’s needs, this company makes most of its spark plugs and oxygen sensors right here in the US. Through its philosophy that the part should be crafted where it is to be used, NGK has evolved to expand its product line and improve its manufacturing techniques.
An advocate of continuous research and development
NGK had successfully established a number of manufacturing plants in California, West Virginia, and Illinois. It had also built its sales headquarters and a Technical Center in Michigan. With these facilities, NGK’s products are created with groundbreaking manufacturing techniques such as the usage of Piezoelectronics, ceramic filters, and ceramic cutting tools.
Proud for some of the world’s firsts in the industry
With NGK’s commitment to expanding its product line, this company has introduced some of the world’s first in the industry. One of these innovations is the company’s introduction of the spark plug ideal for clean-burning and lower-emission engines, the “V-Groove” spark plug. Another first is the pioneering development of new ceramics and its application to integrated computer circuitry.
