The Timken Co. further expanded its industrial services capabilities with the acquisition of the Standard Machine business based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Standard Machine provides new gearboxes, gearbox service and repair, open gearing, large fabrication, machining, and field technical services to end-users in Canada and the western United States. “The acquisition of Standard Machine further advances our strategy to expand our industrial services capabilities,” said Carl D. Rapp, vice president of industrial services for Timken. “Standard Machine’s location near energy and mineral resources, coupled with their strong technical team and service culture, provide an excellent platform to drive long-term growth in our business.” Originally founded in 1967, the business now employs 125 people.
