Accuride Corporation, a supplier of forged components to the
commercial vehicle industry, announced plans to expand its aluminum wheel
production capacity at its Kershaw County, S.C., plant. The company will invest
at least $8.73 million to add two machine lines as part of the expansion, which
will generate approximately 25 new jobs. In June 2011, Accuride acquired
substantially all of the assets of Forgitron Technologies, including the
80,000-square-foot manufacturing facility located in Kershaw County. The
company then converted the plant to its standards.
