The Power of Engineering
and Systems Thinking

Our ability to build a world that is more efficient and resilient for all stakeholders requires the tools and approaches common in engineering and systems thinking.

Going forward, we will harness the power of both to drive our initiatives and measure them against three areas of focus —
to grow knowledge, to advance sustainability and to promote leadership.

Grow Knowledge

As engineers, we appreciate that we are all part of a global system and community. When we leverage our collective experience and know-how, all of society can benefit. We continuously invest in growing our global team as they tackle research and development challenges that have the potential to help change the world.

Advance Sustainability

The promise of a better tomorrow inspires our work today. Greater sustainability is core to our operations, product innovations, and a well-functioning world. Sustainability, to us, takes many forms — we keep essential industries in motion, even in times of crisis, we support industries that advance sustainable practices and we continue to upgrade our own operations.

Promote Leadership

We continuously champion those who move us forward now and in the future. Leadership means we invest in our team and communities through professional and philanthropic programs, volunteer work and STEM-focused educational initiatives. At the same time, Timken’s global team brings to work its diverse perspectives and backgrounds every day, and we’re stronger because of it.

Timken scholarships are an investment in our associates, their families and our future. Read how.
