Ingersoll-Rand Purchases Fafnir Bearing Division

—Literature Available Ingersoll-Rand Company has purchased Fafnir Bearing Division of Textron, Inc., and has merged the ball bearing manufacturer with The Torrington Company, a wholly owned subsidiary.

"This merger broadens the combined company's bearing product lines, strengthens our technology base and enhances our competitive position in global markets," said Thomas E. Bennett, president of Torrington.

In addition, Mr. Bennett announced that Harold M. Brodsky would remain to direct Fafnir's operations as a division of Torrington.

With the addition of Fafnir, Torrington becomes one of the largest broadline bearing manufacturers in the U.S., and fifth largest bearing supplier in the world.

Torrington, one of the world's largest needle bearings suppliers, serves a wide variety of markets, including automotive, consumer durables, oilfield and off-highway equipment, and metal and paper mills.

Fafnir, on the other hand, manufactures and sells precision ball bearings used in aerospace, machine tool, industrial and agricultural markets.
