History of The Timken Company
For more than 100 years, Timken has focused on value creation for
diverse industries and market segments. We've grown considerably
since our founding in 1899, but solving customer problems is still
at the core of our business, just like it was when founder Henry
Timken patented a tapered roller bearing design that made life
easier for freight wagon operators and their mules.
Henry Timken, a St. Louis carriage maker, recognized that heavy
freight wagons had a hard time making sharp turns. To solve the
problem, he applied a tapered roller bearing design that could
handle both radial (weight) and thrust (cornering force) loads.
There were several customer benefits. First, the application ran
more smoothly, reducing repair and replacement costs. In some
cases, the bearings improved wagon performance so much that fewer
mules were required to pull them. Finally, better cornering meant
less chance of losing a load of goods. Always focused on customer
benefit, Henry quickly realized that the tapered roller bearing
could improve product performance in many other applications as
well. He and his sons, H.H. and William Timken, quickly founded The
Timken Roller Bearing and Axle Company and began building the
business into what it is today.
