Timken to cut 400 salaried jobs

Steel alloys and bearings maker Timken. Co. says it plans to cut 400 salaried jobs as it reduces costs to match a slowing market for its products. The Canton, Ohio-based company said that the job cuts represent about 2 percent of its work force.

The recession has manufacturers cutting jobs at a rapid pace while new orders are falling.
