Rosa Sistemi SpA, an Italian company that designs and manufactures roller guideways, linear bearings, customized linear systems and actuators, commercialized ball guideways and precision ball screws, was sold to the Timken Company (NYSE: TKR), a global leader in bearings and industrial motion.

Rosa Sistemi, founded in 1979, directly controls Rosa GmbH and Rosa do Brasil, both commercial subsidiaries based in Switzerland and Brazil respectively, and will post 2023 consolidated turnover of approximately EUR 15 million. The Rosa Sistemi group currently employs around 65 people and has its headquarters, R&D department, and factory in the province of Milan.

The Timken Company (NYSE: TKR), a US-listed multinational corporation with a turnover of more than US$4.5 billion and more than 19,000 employees globally, entered the linear motion space in 2018 with the acquisition of Rollon, the European leader in linear guides, telescopic rails, linear actuators and systems. To further strengthen its leadership in linear motion, Timken acquired iMS in 2021 and, earlier this year, Nadella.
