Timken to Increase Heat-Treating Capacity

July 20, 2006
Project to add induction heating for bars, tubes

July 20, 2006 -- The Timken Co. is planning to add a new induction heating line at its Faircrest Plant in Canton, OH, to increase its heat-treating capability for bar and tubular products up to 7 in. in diameter. The project is estimated at $5 million, though no contractor was cited.

Installation is targeted for January 2007, for completion by the end of March 2007. The line will quench and temper bars and tubes up to 7 in., and also will offer a series of other heat-treatments, including normalizing and stress relieving.

The addition will increase overall plant heat-treating capacity for size ranges up to 11 inches in diameter.

Linn Osterman, vice president of sales and marketing for Timken's Steel Group, stated: "The added capacity will allow us to capitalize on significant opportunities in the global energy, industrial, automotive, and distribution markets. This investment represents our continuing search for value-added opportunities as part of Timken's broader strategy to drive profitable growth."
