March 27, 2006 -- Superior Industries International Inc. has been awarded four contracts to supply aluminum wheels to various Chrysler Group divisions, in programs that involve new and replacement business. Earlier this month, General Motors awarded supply contracts to Superior for large-diameter aluminum wheels for several of its passenger vehicle and SUV products.
For the Chrysler Group, the awards include 18-in. aluminum wheels to be supplied for the 2006 Dodge Magnum and Charger, and a 17-in. wheel for the new Jeep Commander. Both are new programs for Superior. And, Superior will manufacture 17-in. aluminum wheels for the 2006 Dodge Ram Pickup.
According to Superior president and CEO Steven Borick. "The steady expansion of our relationship with the Chrysler Group over the past few years is an important success story for Superior. We are gratified by these latest program wins, and look forward to earning additional growth opportunities from the Chrysler Group in the future."
