A new manufacturing plant worth over 7 million dollars just opened in Pasco for Timken. They are one of the largest engine repair companies in the world and this plant is part of a big Northwest expansion. Reports say this new plant is one of the largest engine repair centers in the country with over 45,000 square feet and lots of capability. “This plant that Timken has built is one of the largest motor repair centers in the Pacific Northwest, as well as the western United States. Officials say "as far as capability goes, with equipment sizing, it competes with any repair centers in the country,”“It’s quite the plant.”

The new plant employs around 70 people but hope to add 35 more in a few years time.
