The inventors of the tapered roller bearing have a unique position amongst bearing manufacturers thanks to their case-hardened bearing rings.

The robustness and reliability of their products is world-renowned: in the USA, TIMKEN is the clear market leader and although TIMKEN only manufactures one type of bearing, it is one of the leading manufacturers.

Since acquiring Torrington in 2003, Timken has a full range of products and is one of the most important roller bearing manufacturers. Timken was quick to realise the importance of the use of quality steel and therefore manufactures their own.

Pure steel from TIMKEN is renowned the world over for its evenness and texture.
