According to this article in the (Canton) Repository, ground has been broken for the construction of an $11.8 million, 18,000 square-foot building to develop wind-turbine bearings for Timken Co., a global manufacturer of bearings, alloy steel and power-transmission components. The project is in partnership with Stark State College, owner of the 15-acre site on which the facility is to be built. The school envisions the area as a high-tech campus focused on emerging technologies, such as wind energy.
