Representatives from Rockford Mayor Larry Morrissey's office and Winnebago County Chairman Scott Christiansen's office stopped in on Sunday to see what's new with Accuride Gunite.
CEO and President Rick Dauch explained how until recently, there was a lack of capital investment in the company. Accuride makes wheel components for vehicles.
The $35 million investment in the Gunite location has secured 400 full-time jobs at the plant and holds promising growth for the future, according to Dauch.
