Birmingham, AL – Motion Industries, a leading distributor of industrial maintenance, repair, and operation (MRO) replacement parts, is pleased to announce that its Service Center in Pensacola, Florida, has recently achieved Timken Bearing Certified Shop "Gold" Level for 2015. Associates from The Timken Company audited the shop, located at 3131 West Navy Blvd., and presented certification signifying the shop adheres to Timken standards for bearing removal and handling, cleaning and inspection, analysis of bearing damage, bearing setting and adjustment, and bearing storage.

As part of this certification process, Timken trained Motion Pensacola shop personnel in the proper cleaning, inspection and storage of wheel bearings. By training its associates in the proper techniques and then auditing and certifying the process, Motion has indicated its confidence that the bearings returned to service are properly cleaned and inspected and will deliver their full life potential.

"We congratulate Motion Industries Pensacola Service Shop for its commitment to meeting the high standards necessary to achieve the status of Timken Bearing Certification," said David A. Novak, Jr., Timken director of service engineering and strategic projects.

Kendall Lambert, Motion Industries' Vice President/General Manager of the territory, also applauded the shop employees' efforts. He said, "It is truly extraordinary for a shop to pass the pre-audit with a Bronze Certification, and then be awarded the Gold Level after the 'official' audit, especially considering this is the shop's first year of the Timken audit process."

"The outstanding efforts of our Pensacola team reflect Motion's ongoing commitment to quality service," added Randy Breaux, Motion Industries' Senior Vice President, Southern U.S. Operations, Corporate Marketing and Strategic Planning. "Their hard work, focus, and dedication resulted in this significant achievement."
