The Timken Company is expanding 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, according to our sister site, Truck Parts & Service. 

Thomas Tecklenburg, director of commercial vehicle original equipment and automotive aftermarket for Timken says the company and its distributors see strong opportunities targeting the medium-duty vehicle market sector.

ā€œToday, 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,ā€ he says. 

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.
