Accuride Expanding Forged Aluminum Wheel Production
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.
