Antifriction and Timken

At Antifriction, we’re proud to be an authorised distributor of Timken, a world-leading innovator and manufacturer of industrial components. With headquarters in the United States, Timken has more than 100 years of experience designing and manufacturing bearings.

Timken was founded as The Timken Roller Bearing and Axle Company in 1899, by Henry Timken, a carriage maker from St. Louis, Missouri. Since then, the manufacturer has expanded to produce all types of bearings, as well as a huge catalogue of industrial components and tools.

A full catalogue of bearings

Today, Timken offers a comprehensive range of bearings, from plain bearings to roller bearings and cylindrical bearings. Each bearing can be manufactured in a range of materials too, including low-alloy carbon-chromium, deep hardening steels and corrosion-resistant 440°C stainless steel.
