Alcoa Wheel attend at the Truckfest South West 2011
Alcoa Wheel Products, which manufactures forged aluminium wheels for trucks, trailers and buses, will be in attendance when Truckfest South West 2011 kicks off on 2 July. To strengthen its position in the UK, Alcoa hired a new UK sales manager in February this year. Crampton brought with him 15 years of experience in the commercial vehicle industry and the company explained that Truckfest South West is a great way for people interested in the company’s products to meet the team.
The company recently introduced a 17.5 x 6.75, 6-hole truck wheel for medium duty trucks in the range of 6 to 12 tons. Available in brushed and Dura-Bright finishes, the company reports that this product hit the market in April 2011 and is therefore available now. MAN were the first truck brand to offer this wheel on their TGL medium duty truck range. The wheel is also available for the aftermarket via the Alcoa Wheel Products distributor in the UK, Tyre-Line Ltd.
