, plans to expand aluminum wheel production capacity at its Camden, 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 at least 25 new jobs.
In June 2011, Accuride acquired the assets of Forgitron Technologies
, including the 80,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Camden. Accuride converted the plant to its standards and will now expand capacity to produce a range of forged aluminum commercial vehicle wheels at the facility. The company currently produces Accuride-brand 22.5-inch-by-8.25-inch forged aluminum wheels at the facility.
"Our investment helps to ensure we have the right production capacity in place where and when our customers need it, at a higher standard of quality and dependability," says President and CEO Rick Dauch.
