The Timken Company (NYSE: TKR), North Canton, OH, reported sales for the second quarter of $789.2 million, down 0.3 percent year-over-year. Profit decreased 23 percent to $63.8 million.

"During the quarter, we completed the spinoff of TimkenSteel on time and under budget and we're now fully focused on executing our strategy for the bearings and power transmission business," said Richard Kyle, president and CEO. "We expect a stronger second half based on modest market growth combined with penetration gains and continued cost improvement."
