2/2/2023 - Bearings maker The Timken Co. has acquired the assets of American Roller Bearing Co. (ARB) for an undisclosed amount, the company has announced. 

North Carolina-based American Roller Bearing specializes in heavy-duty, industrial-class bearings in outer diameters of up to 84 inches. Timken said the company’s offerings will be added to Timken’s portfolio of engineered bearing solutions.
