“Most of our growth will come from expanding around our core.  Now, with that said, we also seek growth opportunities in adjacent expansion.  We’ll continue to evaluate acquisitions that grow our base knowledge, but that also take us into new areas. Let’s be clear…we intend to grow.”

Stock distribution for the new company will begin at the end of the month; with one share of Timken Steel Corporation common stock for every two shares of The Timken Company’s common stock--held by Timken shareholders of record as of June 23, 2014.
