Veterans bring valuable experience and insights to employers

At The Timken Co., engineering principles are embedded in our culture.

The people who work here quickly learn how their individual roles contribute to our collective success. Military veterans who join our team already have this mindset as soon as they walk through the door. I should know ― I’m a veteran who works at Timken.

I’m also proud to work for a company that not only supports veterans as they transition from the military, but also provides them with opportunities to advance their careers here.
