Accuride Corporation today announced that it has realigned its organizational structure and made key appointments among its executive leadership team to support the company’s continued expansion as a leading supplier of wheels and wheel end solutions to the global commercial vehicle industry.  

Accuride is consolidating its wheel end components businesses, including the previously stand-alone Gunite unit and the KIC business it acquired in May 2017, into a single new business unit, Accuride Wheel End Solutions. John A. Schneider who joined Accuride as president of KIC will now serve as president of Accuride Wheel End Solutions. Products of this new business unit will continue to be marketed under the KIC and Gunite brands.  

In addition, Accuride has reorganized into two separate, coordinated business units for commercial vehicle wheels: Accuride Wheels North America and Accuride Wheels Europe and Asia. Gregory A. Risch, previously president of Accuride’s Gunite business unit, has been appointed president of Accuride Wheels North America. Scott D. Hazlett, previously president of wheels, now serves as president of Accuride Wheels Europe and Asia. Risch, Hazlett and Schneider report directly to Accuride President and CEO Rick Dauch.

“These organizational changes and appointments better align our team to efficiently lead and operate Accuride following our acquisition of KIC, while supporting our continued global expansion initiatives, including completion of our pending acquisition of Mefro Wheels GmbH, which is now undergoing routine merger clearance review with appropriate authorities,” Dauch said.
