KYOTO, Japan, Aug. 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nidec Corporation (NYSE:NJ) (the "Company" or "Nidec") today announced that Nidec India Private Limited ("NIND"), the Company's subsidiary in India, plans to obtain an Indian rupee-denominated financing from the Japan Bank for International Cooperation ("JBIC"). This is the first loan to be provided by JBIC denominated in Indian rupee.
NIND provides a common operation environment for multiple Nidec group businesses in the manufacture of automotive, appliance, commercial and industrial motors in India. NIND enables the sharing of production infrastructure among multiple operations, localization of design operations, and low-cost production knowhow.
