Alcoa launches new wheel line

Oct. 5, 2004

Alcoa has introduced a new line of forged aluminum wheels for the 2005 Ford Super Duty truck.

Alcoa also has announced that it has reduced the launch cycle for its new forged wheel for Chrysler "from the standard 38 weeks to five weeks."

The accelerated roll out "demonstrates our understanding of customer needs and the ability to anticipate the tooling requirements associated with these needs," says Tim Myers, head of Alcoa´s Forged Specialty Wheels unit.

"We are at the beginning of a new era entailing multiple product launches each quarter for the foreseeable future."
