Hayes Lemmerz International Inc has completed an $11-million upgrade program at its commercial-highway manufacturing operations in Akron OH.
The program took place over the past two years and included upgrades in equipment technology and process improvement.
Hayes Lemmerz Akron Operations provides tubeless and tube-type wheels, rims, and associated parts to the commercial highway industry. The operations also manufacture military wheels for certain manufacturers of government vehicles. Improvements have led Hayes Lemmerz Akron Operations to receive QS-9000 certification in July 2001.
