Nakata Engineering, Inc, makers of top grade tire ply extrusion and rubber processing machinery for over a century, has named BPS Engineering, LLC as their agent and representative in North and South America. Beginning officially in February of 2018, BPS Engineering will provide new and existing Nakata Engineering customers with sales, support and a complete inventory of commonly required spare parts for Nakata machinery. BPS Engineering will house Nakata replacement parts in its Tennessee facility and will handle invoicing and distribution. BPS will also be responsible for new equipment sales in the territory.
BPS Engineering, located in Greenback, Tennessee, is a centrally located manufacturer of tire building capital equipment for the tire industry providing innovative tire building drums, transfer rings and other specialized products to the industry. Nakata will continue to provide engineering and service support from their home base in Kobe, Japan and will lend staff and resources when necessary. BPS Engineering also has the capability to manufacture some Nakata replacement parts for the Western market and may be contracted to do so should the need arise. Both companies plan to investigate additional synergies as the relationship matures.
Together, this strategic partnership between two respected tire manufacturing equipment providers will allow Nakata Engineering to serve its North and South American customers with faster spare parts delivery and more localized service and sales.
