Timken has paid a dividend on its common shares every quarter since its listing on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in 1922. With the dividend announced today Timken joins a distinguished list of companies to achieve this significant milestone.
“There’s no better testament to The Timken Company’s enduring value and strength than paying a dividend every quarter for 100 straight years,” said John M. Timken, Jr., chairman. “Very few companies share this distinction, and Timken is poised to continue building on its century of achievements as a public company and creating sustainable value for all of our stakeholders.”
“We’re extremely proud to hold one of the longest-running dividend streaks among NYSE-listed companies, as it reflects the strength and resiliency of our business model and the steadfast demand for Timken products and technology,” said Richard G. Kyle, president and chief executive officer. “As a global industrial leader serving a wide range of end markets worldwide, we will continue to advance the company strategy and invest in the business to drive future growth and strong returns for our shareholders.”
Timken operates in 42 countries and supports a broad array of industrial end markets, including renewable energy and automation, which now represent the company’s first and second largest individual end markets, respectively.
