"The combination of new engine overhaul capabilities with Timken's existing replacement parts and service operations opens up powerful opportunities to provide complete fleet support for our growing aviation customer base. We intend to expand our aerospace portfolio by making strategic investments that help us improve customers' performance."

Timken plans to continue the former Turbo Engines operations under existing management at the overhauler's current location in Tucson, Ariz., as part of Timken's aerospace aftermarket solutions business. The staff at the 42,000-square-foot Tucson facility consists of 35 people, primarily airframe and powerplant technical specialists.

A recipient of the "Certificate of Excellence" Gold Award for 2005 from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Turbo Engines has earned a strong industry reputation for expert repair, overhaul and support services for a wide variety of aircraft engines, components and helicopter transmissions.

Among the engine platforms supported are the Pratt & Whitney PT6 and Twin Pac series, Honeywell T53 series engines, as well as Bell power transmission and drive train components and Goodrich fuel controls. Services include complete engine overhaul and accessory and part reconditioning, in addition to exchange programs and field support.
