Timken India Ltd., a subsidiary of The Timken Co., plans to invest Rs. 360 million, or approximately US$8 million, to expand tapered roller bearing manufacturing capacity in India to satisfy “a steep increase in demand…in and outside India,” said Ajay Das, Managing Director of Timken’s operations in India. Timken India will install machines for this expansion at Chennai. The project, scheduled to commence production in the second quarter of 2011, will enable a capacity increase of 2.4 million races of up to 8-in (203-mm) tapered roller bearings, used in construction and other off-highway vehicles as well as heavy trucks and other commercial transportation systems. The expansion is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2011.
