The Timken Company announces 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,” says Thomas Tecklenburg, director of commercial vehicle original equipment and automotive aftermarket for Timken. “Today, nearly 40 percent 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.”
Customers can see the expanding line of Timken bearings and hub units for medium-duty vehicles at www.TimkenInfo.com. The company says the easy-to-use database lists available Timken bearings and hub units for specific vehicle models and years.
