Chassix Changes Name to Reflect Brand Evolution


Source: Aludyne

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Chassix, a global lightweighting solutions and components supplier to the mobility industry, announced that it has formally changed the company’s name to Aludyne.

For more than twenty years Aludyne has manufactured aluminum and iron cast vehicle components for safety critical applications, including chassis, subframe, and electric vehicles. The company is introducing this name as a reflection of its evolution and the trajectory of the mobility industry. As the industry changes and requires lighter and safer vehicle components, Aludyne more closely embodies the work currently being done by the company and the future of its business.

“Our company has always been committed to evolving with our customers and their needs. As we look to the future, we wanted a name to demonstrate our expertise and role in the mobility industry,” Andreas Weller, president and CEO said. “Aludyne expresses our lightweighting knowledge and dynamic approach to manufacturing.”

With more than 25 strategically located facilities across nine countries, the company can efficiently meet local and regional demands. Through this network, Aludyne enables lighter weight vehicles that improve fuel economy, reduce emissions, and help lower carbon footprints. This presence has led to the company becoming one of the largest aluminum subframe producers in Europe and the world’s largest supplier of aluminum steering knuckles.

“As the company matured, our capabilities diversified and we shifted to a more solutions-based operation. Aludyne is ready to deliver innovative solutions to complex mobility problems,” Weller said.

This is another step in the company’s evolution. Earlier in 2019, the company announced a new sales and engineering office in Munich, Germany and is currently launching new plants in Suzhou, China and Ostrava, Czech Republic.
