ArvinMeritor Gains from Steel Wheels

ArvinMeritor Gains from Steel Wheels

Wednesday, December 15, 2004
 
According to the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI), ArvinMeritor, Troy, MI, has delivered more than 850,000 stamped, welded and chrome-clad steel wheels to DaimlerChrysler for its Dodge Ram 1500 truck. Based on that success, DaimlerChrysler has tapped ArvinMeritor for additional steel-wheel business for the next-generation Dodge Ram 2500. AISI says that the ArvinMeritor contract reflects a surge in popularity of styled steel wheels by the public and vehicle manufacturers, with more than 8 million of the wheels on the road today compared to 600,000 only five years ago.
