In 1898, Henry Timken received a patent for a tapered roller bearing that made life easier for freight wagon operators and their mules. The Timken Roller Bearing Axle Company was founded a year later. The company quickly expanded and entered the overseas market through a licensing agreement in England in 1909. In 1954, Timken introduced a revolutionary bearing assembly design for use in railroad cars. By 1995, the company had reached $2 billion in annual sales. The company continues to grow with the recent acquisitions of Torrington, Purdy, Philadelphia Gear, and Drives LLC.
