Accuride Corporation (NYSE: ACW) – a leading supplier of components to the commercial vehicle industry – announced today that Lewis M. Kling has been appointed to the company’s Board of Directors as an independent director, effective immediately. Kling fills the Board seat vacant since the departure of former Director Robert J. Kelly on July 29, 2011.

“We are honored to welcome Lew to the Accuride Board and look forward to benefitting from his extensive corporate leadership and broad business expertise,” said Bill Lasky, Accuride’s Chairman. “Given his experience setting strategy for several global industrial companies, Lew will provide a unique perspective in helping the Board shape the course of Accuride’s long-term growth and development.”

Rick Dauch, Accuride President & CEO, commented: “I look forward to working with – and learning from – Lew. He has a tremendous track record of fixing and growing manufacturing and engineering businesses, which is exactly what we are doing here at Accuride.”

Prior to joining the Accuride Board, Kling served as President, CEO and a Director of Flowserve Corp. – a global provider of industrial flow-management systems – from 2005 until 2009. He was Executive Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of Flowserve until February 2010.

Before joining Flowserve as Chief Operations Officer in 2004, Kling served as Group President, Corporate Vice President and Officer of SPX Corp. from 1999 to 2004. He also served as President of Dielectric Communications for General Signal Corp., which was acquired by SPX in 1998. Kling’s career included tenures with AlliedSignal Aerospace, Harris Corp. and General Electric.

Currently, Kling serves on the Board of Directors at Eastman Chemical Co.; Capital Safety Group, a Kohlberg, Kravis, Roberts (KKR) company; and the National Jewish Health (Hospital). He also serves as a partner and Chairman of Zelo Public Relations. Kling holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and an MBA from Stetson University.
