Nikken Kosakusho are one of the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of world class precision engineering products such as CNC Rotary Tables, NC Tooling Solutions, Tool Presetters and Spindle Optimisation Solutions. Here in the UK and Europe, we are proud to be working with some industry’s leading names including customers in aerospace, automotive and Formula One, medical manufacturing and precision engineering. We also offer state of the art optimisation solutions for precision manufacturing customers.

Founded in Europe by our CEO, Tony Bowkett, and then President, Mr Masakazu Matsumoto, nearly 30 years ago, we have two sites in Rotherham, South Yorkshire as well as offices throughout Europe including France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Sweden and Poland. Our Headquarters are based at our Euro Centre, with our European warehouse and our well-established sales and servicing teams, in Greasborough.  In 2015, we opened our new flagship facility, The Nikken Innovation Centre Europe (NICe), based on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Catcliffe, which is an advanced engineering facility providing an exceptional environment for our customer to visit and see our products and solutions in action.  Due to constant growth to meet customer needs, we are currently expanding NICe to create a manufacturing area and a new tooling workshop as part of our landmark solution and technical partnership with Boeing. Both our sites are close to junctions 31 and 33 of the M1 and all major routes with parking available on site.

Employing approximately 100 people across Europe, our culture is underpinned by our belief in continuous study and research.  The spirit of innovation runs deep throughout the business and we are committed to investing in both our facilities and our people.  Our link with the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (our CEO is a Board member), demonstrates our belief in and commitment to innovation and development.

Many of our people have been with us for a decade or more, showing that this is a place where people love to work but we also employ a significant number of newly qualified and apprentice engineers, offering local young people a chance to develop a career with us. We have a friendly and open atmosphere at our sites with open plan offices and excellent staff facilities. Our offices offer a really welcoming environment so, if you’re just joining or learning something new, our team are always ready to help each other.

Our packages are competitive and include a contributory pension scheme, generous holidays including a Christmas shutdown and an annual discretionary bonus.

If you would think that the “Nikken spirit” is right for you and you want to be part of the spirit of innovation, then keep checking our Careers Page for our latest opportunities.
