The Timken Company announced an expansion of its product portfolio of tapered roller bearing sets, hub units, and seals for medium-duty vehicles, including commercial vans, delivery trucks, bucket trucks, and other fleet vehicles. “We and our distributors see strong opportunities targeting the medium-duty vehicle market sector,” said Thomas Tecklenburg, director of commercial vehicle original equipment and automotive aftermarket for Timken. “Today, nearly 40% of commercial vehicles are considered medium-duty and that number is growing as businesses increasingly opt for smaller vehicles to save fuel costs, particularly for in-city deliveries.”
To help keep their trucks running well while carrying heavy loads in stop-and-go traffic, many medium-duty truck owners and operators choose long-lasting Timken premium bearings. Customers can see the expanding line of Timken bearings and hub units for medium-duty vehicles online at www.TimkenInfo.com.
