The Start of Our Mooresville, NC Facility
In the 1980s, our parent company, NGK Insulators, Ltd., began seeking the perfect location in North America for its new ceramics subsidiary. After searching far and wide, an existing facility in Mooresville, North Carolina, was chosen. Conveniently, the building already had the necessary utilities running to it. But, most importantly, there was easy access to a major highway, making for easy delivery of raw materials and transport of the finished product.
Once NGK obtained the property, the facility underwent the extensive renovations needed to provide the optimal environment for ceramics production and a comfortable workplace for NGK Ceramics' employees. In 1988, after renovations were complete, manufacturing began and has continued to grow. Over the years, we have experienced 16 expansions to better serve the automotive industry in North America and worldwide.
Today, we still proudly call Mooresville home and operate in the same facility where it all began in 1988, with no signs of slowing down. We are dedicated to manufacturing superior products for our customers, bettering the environment, and providing a safe and welcoming workplace.
