About NSR

Next Step Resources (NSR) was founded in Ohio, USA in 1995. Our mission is to bridge the cultural gap between American, Japanese, and international companies in providing top level Business and engineering solutions.

With over 30 years of experience in the industry, NSR has an in-depth understanding of market trends and the personnel needed to continue pushing the frontiers on technological innovation.

After much success in Ohio State, NSR registered another company in Japan. NSR utilizes the advantages of having entities in both the USA and Japan, which provides strategic advantages for our clients.
