Accuride 2016: A year to remember

An inspirational journey of Accuride International towards the future

Happy New Year! It’s the start of an exciting new chapter for Accuride–and, we hope, for you as well. But before we look too far ahead, let’s have a moment and glance back at what was a momentous year for Accuride:

We Have Liftoff

This year saw the launch of Senseon Secure Access, a brand of easy-to-install, easy-to-use cabinet-level access control systems and accessories. This new brand uses cutting-edge RFID technology to secure valuable contents in retail, office, and many other settings. Even with such advanced tech, Senseon systems embody simplicity in installation and operation. An administrator can assign access to up to 100 cards, fobs, or other RFID-enabled accessories at a single time. And Senseon’s compact size makes it easy to conceal within displays, cases, and more.

Accuride team leaders Claudia Tuttle and Greg Rewers spotlight some major new releases, including Senseon Secure Access.

With its debut, Senseon garnered a lot of attention across the industry by becoming a finalist for Challengers Distinguished Achievement Award ® at the International Woodworking Fair in Atlanta. Senseon also made it on the radar of some major industry publications, including STORES, RFID Journal, and Surface & Panel.

Making Great Even Greater

Accuride is always looking for ways to improve their products to meet their customers’ needs. To kick off the new year, Accuride will be enhancing more slides from the 3800 family of products. The overall friction and drag on the 3832TR, 3832HDTR, 3832DO, and 3820 are now reduced by adding longer ball retainers and more ball bearings. That may not sound like a lot, but those small changes equal much smoother movement—and more convenience for you.

Embracing Change

Lastly, the past year saw Accuride launch its first blog. Yes, it was long overdue and, yes, it hasn’t been without hiccups—but we’re nonetheless happy to give you the news with a lighter, more human tone.

And we’ve also rejuvenated our social media presence via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Google+. Believe it or not, Google+ is still a thing (or so our social media specialist tells us).

Looking Ahead

While the past year was a big one, 2017 promises to be even bigger for Accuride as we roll out a slew of exciting content. Also on the horizon for 2017 are some great new products that will expand the frontier of movement solutions. We’d tell you what those new products are but our legal team expressly prohibited us from saying anything.

As you can see Accuride had quite the eventful year in 2016, and we are looking to capitalize on those achievements in 2017. To keep up with Accuride and Senseon happenings be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and YouTube.
