TIMKEN Bearings

The company was founded by Henry Timken in St. Louis, Missouri in 1899 and incorporated as The Timken Roller Bearing Axle Company. A year earlier, in 1898, Timken got a patent for the tapered roller bearing for which the company would become known. At the time, Timken was a carriage maker in St. Louis and held three patents for carriage springs. However, it was his patent for tapered roller bearings that allowed his company to become successful.



The Timken Company keeps the world turning with innovative friction management and power transmission products. Timken is one of the world’s leading producers of highly engineered anti-friction bearings and alloy steel components, including being the bearing industry’s leading supplier of 52100 steel. Other areas Timken specializes in are power transmission components, engineered surfaces and coatings, lubrication, seals, and motion control systems.

Specifically, The Timken Company has several recognizable brands:

Timken tapered roller bearings are world-renowned for their quality and breadth of sizes. Using case-carburized steel, Timken tapers allow optimal performance in severe applications, including those with severe contamination and shock loads. Timken only offers high-precision Class 3, 0, and 00 machine tool-grade tapered roller bearings.
