Timken to supply rail-car bearings for India's Titagarh Wagons


The Timken Co. recently obtained a $6.5 million contract to supply bearings for freight cars built by Titagarh Wagons Ltd., India’s second-largest private rail-car builder.

Timken will produce Timken® AP™ Class E tapered bearings — designed to accommodate heavier loads while maintaining stability — at its Jamshedpur, India, plant. Next year, the company plans to open a second Indian production facility in Chennai.

“Timken’s strategy of investing in India is to serve our global customers and also gain new local customers, such as Titagarh Wagons, in this rapidly developing market,” said David White, director of sales and marketing for Timken’s Indian operations, in a prepared statement.
