Video Available: Timken To Invest $225 Million At Its Faircrest Steel Plant In Ohio To Support Growing Demand

"We have a highly skilled, capable workforce committed to continuous improvement," said Thomas D. Moline, vice president of steel manufacturing.  "Our team understands what it takes to make custom-melted, high-quality alloy bars and tubes that meet our customers' exacting metallurgical requirements.  This investment, which is the largest since opening the plant in 1985, builds on those skills to improve our productivity, while giving us the ability to offer even more to the customers who rely on us for their own success."

Timken, known for the reliability of its power transmission products that include bearings, gears and related components, cites its century-long steelmaking expertise as a key competitive differentiator.  In 2011, the Timken steel segment melted 1.7 million tons of raw materials to generate $2 billion of sales of its custom-designed steel. To further productivity and growth, the company invested more than $200 million in its steel operations in northeast Ohio in the last five years. The most recent of those investments included a $35 million high-volume in-line forge press at the Faircrest rolling mill, which is under construction, and $50 million in capital improvements at its Harrison and Gambrinus steel plants.
