Kendall Lambert, Motion Industries’ Vice President/General Manager of the territory, applauded the shop employees’ efforts as well saying “I would like to congratulate the Pensacola Service Center personnel and management for the Timken Bearing Certified Shop ‘Platinum’ Level Certification.

Achieving Gold Level Certification in the first year of the program,and now achieving the highest Platinum Level offered by Timken in the second year is outstanding.
For in-house shops, the Bearing Certified designation confirms that a shop has solid processes and the appropriate equipment in place to ensure proper bearing maintenance. Before employees are trained, a Timken engineer will conduct a pre-audit. It’s a rigorous evaluation that documents the quality of the processes and equipment a facility hasin place to store, remove, install and maintain bearings. Afterthetraining, the Timken engineer returns for the post-training audit. Depending on how well the facility scores, it can earn one of several Bearing Certified levels as well as receive recommendations for any improvements.
