Timken Named to Fortune 500

Canton, Ohio-based manufacturer Timken Co. was named to Fortune magazine's Fortune 500 listing of the largest companies in the U.S. With $3.8 billion in sales in 2003, Timken is ranked 444 overall and 12 on Fortune's list of industrial and farm equipment manufacturers.

CANTON, OH — Canton, Ohio-based manufacturer Timken Co. was named to Fortune magazine’s Fortune 500 listing of the largest companies in the U.S.

With $3.8 billion in sales in 2003, Timken is ranked 444 overall and 12 on Fortune’s list of industrial and farm equipment manufacturers.

“Several years ago, we set out to transform our company to achieve greater profitable growth through customer centricity,” said James Griffith, president and CEO. “While our acquisition of The Torrington Co. in 2003 increased the size of the company by 50 percent, it’s been our longer-term concentration on improving performance, innovating new products and forming the right team of people that laid the foundation for Timken to re-enter this prestigious list. The real value of that transformation is that it has positioned us for even greater global growth in the coming years.”

Timken was last included in the Fortune 500 in 1995 when the list was comprised only of industrial companies. The Fortune 500 list is based on revenues of publicly held U.S. companies. This year represents the 50th anniversary of the listing.
