Trusted on the road

In the heart of Alcoa Wheels’ story lies a narrative of evolution, powered by the belief that each innovation is an opportunity to serve our partners better.

“We’ve always viewed ourselves as the innovation leader in the heavy truck aluminium wheel market,” emphasises President Randall Scheps.

This outlook inspires us to stay attuned to our partners’ needs.

The foundation of this pursuit is a dialogue that extends beyond questions to tangible action.

Scheps elaborates, “We come back to our R&D team, and we say, okay, here’s what the fleets need; let’s go find a way that we solved the problem.”

This iterative process exemplifies our commitment to meeting expectations and exceeding them.

Our journey is more than industry recognition; it’s a story of partnerships that have thrived for decades.

Bobby Sooch, Operations Manager at Ausway Transport, attests to this partnership:  “We’ve used Alcoa wheels on all our trucks from day one, so it’s a 19-year partnership. Our trucks are 100 per cent on Alcoa wheels”. The significance of this statement isn’t just in numbers; it’s in the trust placed in our wheels day in and day out across countless miles.

James Yerbury, Managing Director at Robuk, adds another layer of appreciation: “Alcoa is great at always thinking ahead and always looking at ways to deliver better and lighter wheels.”

Our wheels aren’t just products; they’re embodiments of usability, sustainability, and visibility, representing a holistic commitment to a better tomorrow.

Their words go beyond utility, embodying the essence of our collaborative blend of form and function.

A gem that isn’t confined to the past but is a beacon guiding us towards an even brighter future.
