Timken Transfers Some Logistics Operations to Joint Venture

CANTON, OH — Timken is transferring the balance of its Toronto, Ont., and Reno, Nev., warehousing operations to its joint venture CoLinx. CoLinx was formed as a joint venture between INA Holding Schaeffler KG, Rockwell Automation, The SKF Group and Timken. The company provides Web-based services and integrated logistics for premium-brand industrial manufacturers.

Timken’s Reno and Toronto facilities currently ship Torrington and Fafnir products to authorized distributors throughout Canada and the western U.S. They will become integrated within the existing CoLinx operations that have already been shipping Timken products for two years. The transfer of operations will be effective April 24.

The transfer between CoLinx Canada and Timken includes moving from current warehouse operations — a 15,000-square-foot facility located in Mississauga, a Toronto suburb — to a new 50,000-square-foot CoLinx warehouse in Bramalea, Ontario. CoLinx Canada said it has offered employment opportunities to Timken’s four full-time warehouse associates.

In Reno, warehouse operations will move from the current 20,000-square-foot facility to a 110,000-square-foot facility in Sparks, Nev. CoLinx has also offered employment opportunities to Timken’s four full-time Reno warehouse associates.

According to Kari Groh, general manager, global logistics and customer service for Timken’s distribution management business, the move will create greater efficiencies as the two operations are primary distribution points for all of its brands across Canada and the western U.S.

“These initiatives allow us to advance our logistics function so that we have central distribution operations for the full complement of quality Timken products across Canada and the western U.S.,” said Groh. “These moves also set the stage for us to provide ‘one face to the customer,’ a key objective since we acquired The Torrington Co. last year.”

“We trust that our distributors will find it much easier to do business with us as soon as we complete the integration of our order management systems, which is scheduled for later this year,” she added. “In the interim, the product will be co-located, but we will continue operating on separate order management systems — one for Timken products and the other for Torrington and Fafnir products.”
