"The addition of the SES Technical Group's service offerings expands our ability to grow beyond bearings and deliver innovative solutions to our customers."

"We are extremely pleased about the strategic fit and growth prospects of the SES Technical Group now that it has become part of Timken," said Jim Boughton, CEO, SES, LLC. "For years, SES has serviced The Timken Company as a customer, and we have always had a great respect for the capabilities and people of Timken. This is a very positive move for the associates of the Technical Group."

In conjunction with the acquisition, Timken has announced that Matt Schleich has been named general manager - Reliability Services. Matt will have operational and strategic leadership for this business.

Timken Industrial Services works closely with industrial end users, original equipment manufacturers and distributors globally to offer services such as bearing repair, bearing reclamation, component repair, on-site training, mill maintenance, diagnostic services, and now, predictive maintenance services.

The assets of SES Technical Group were acquired by Timken Industrial Services, LLC, a subsidiary of The Timken Company, and will become part of the Timken Industrial Services group.
