Alcoa Aluminum Wheels Recognized For Safety And Energy Efficiency In China

Alcoa (NYSE:AA) received a 2013 Accessory of the Year Award in the category of Best Safety and Energy Savings for the contributions of its forged aluminum wheels to China's bus manufacturing industry. The annual awards are organized by leading Chinese trade publications CNbuses.com and shangyongqiche.com and supported by the China Tourism News.

"We have been supplying Alcoa forged aluminum wheels to the Chinese bus market for nearly a decade,” said Tim Myers, President, Alcoa Wheel and Transportation Products. "This award acknowledges the important role our lightweight, durable wheels play in helping improve the performance and efficiency of commercial vehicles throughout China."

In selecting Alcoa Wheels for the award, the trade publications cited three factors: Alcoa's brand influence and reputation; the application of Alcoa's advanced process and technologies in the Chinese market; and Alcoa as an industry leader in helping lightweight the commercial vehicle industry.

Manufacturers, industry experts, media and the online public voted for winners in several categories including bus power, chassis, transmission, safety and energy savings, and smart technology.

Alcoa produces parts for various Chinese bus manufacturers, including Yutong, China's largest bus manufacturer, and Shenzhen Wuzhoulong Motors Co. Ltd. Alcoa's Super Single Wheels have contributed to better energy savings on Wuzhoulong's electric and hybrid buses.

Alcoa has had a presence in China since 2004, when it began selling wheels out of Shanghai. Since then, the business has grown to include an employee base in Guangzhou, Beijing, Jinan and Suzhou. Last December, Alcoa opened a production facility in Suzhou, China, marking an expansion that creates a full wheel manufacturing, distribution, sales and service network in China.
