Timken integrates new product brands on Internet

The Timken Company today announced that Torrington, Fafnir and Kilian-branded products are available on-line at The Timken Store at http://www.PTplace.com, offering US industrial distributors that are authorized to carry these lines a broader range of bearing-based solutions via the Web. "Timken has aggressively transformed itself over the last three years to be a more customer-centric and competitive global leader," said Daniel E. Muller, vice president - distribution management. "With our acquisition of The Torrington Company in February of this year, we committed to quickly and efficiently integrate our new product brands into PTplace.com. This is a significant element of our strategy to enhance how we serve our authorized distributors."The acquisition of Torrington expands The Timken Company's portfolio of bearings-based products. Torrington, a leading global manufacturer of needle roller bearings, complements Timken, a worldwide leader in the production of tapered roller bearings. Torrington's products also include ball, spherical and cylindrical bearings and motion control components and assemblies."This is an exciting step in the integration process as we transform to better serve our customers. Adding Torrington, Fafner and Kilian-branded products makes it possible for our distributors to increase their efficiency and effectiveness in the marketplace, and that positions us for mutually profitable growth," said Mr. Muller.
