Rockford Operations

Founded as Gunite Corporation in 1854, Accuride Wheel End Solutions, Rockford Operations is a leading North American supplier of wheel-end systems and components for the heavy- and medium-duty truck market and their related aftermarkets. The Gunite-branded product line includes brake drums, disc wheel hubs, spoke wheels, rotors, and slack adjusters. Along with its focus on innovative product design, development and manufacture, Accuride Wheel End Solutions, Rockford Operations continues to emphasize quality and performance. An example of this superior level of product quality and consistency is the fact that Gunite brand brake drums have long been the standard drum used in testing brake linings. Over the years, that same dedication to quality has gained the company industry recognition in the form of Ford Motor Company’s prestigious Q-1 award and Freightliner’s Masters of Quality award; as well as being approved as standard equipment by every OEM in the heavy-duty industry.
