CANTON, Ohio The Timken Co. has received the 2011 Quality Award from the Automotive Distribution Network, one of the country’s largest auto parts program groups. Timken supplies the group with a full line of automotive aftermarket products, including Timken hub units, bearings, grease and seals.

“It’s an honor to have the Automotive Distribution Network recognize Timken for our quality products,” said Thomas W.

We are pleased to recognize Timken for its exceptional quality products. Our Quality Awards are based on performance at the service dealer level, and, when it comes to bearings, they ask for Timken by name."
