Timken Expanding Products Lineup for Medium-Duty Vehicles as Segment Grows

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.
