For more than 100 years, Timken has focused on value creation for diverse industries and market segments
History Overview

Henry Timken, at the times that heavy freight wagons had a hard time making sharp turns; to solve the problem, he applied a tapered roller bearing design that could handle both radial (weight) and thrust (cornering force) loads. There were several customer benefits. First, the application ran more smoothly, reducing repair and replacement costs. In some cases, the bearings improved wagon performance so much that fewer mules were required to pull them. Finally, better cornering meant less chance of losing a load of goods. Henry and his sons, H.H. and William, founded The Timken Roller Bearing and Axle Company in 1899, building the foundation for a global enterprise that today helps keep the world in motion.
Corporate Overview
Timken company has been focused on high tech anti-friction steel bearings and power transmission sytstems.
