Alvance Aluminium Wheels has bagged a contract to supply 35,000 aluminum wheels per year to Tyre-Line Original Equipment for the caravan market in the EU and the UK.
The Paris-based aluminum wheels maker, which is a part of Alvance Aluminium, said in a press release on September 17 that the wheel sizes would range from 14-16 inches in diameter. This is the first time that the company would be producing wheels for an industry other than the automotive business.
Under the contract, Alvance will design, test, and produce customized caravan wheels to the desired specifications, since these are smaller than those for automobiles. According to Alvance, the wheels would be produced at Alvance Aluminium’s Dunkerque facility, which is also the largest aluminum smelter in Europe.
After a year, the order for these wheels could rise to 50,000 per year as Tyre-Line plans to partner with Alvance for wheels assemblies across all caravan sizes.
