RONAL Group 50th Anniversary


The RONAL GROUP, one of the leading manufacturers of light alloy wheels for passenger cars and commercial vehicles, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

Landmark Celebration for RONAL

The company is putting on a global roadshow to thank its workforce for their commitment which has been a major factor in its success.

The "Anniversary World Tour 2019" started at the beginning of May at RONAL GROUP headquarters in Härkingen in Switzerland and will end in November in Nantou, Taiwan, home of subsidiary company Fullchamp, manufacturer of forged aluminum wheels for the SPEEDLINE TRUCK brand. During this time, the anniversary convoy will visit all the RONAL GROUP sites around the world.

“To mark our 50-year anniversary, the World Tour is something quite special that we've come up with to thank our 8,000-plus employees for their enthusiasm and their hard work. Without them, the RONAL GROUP could never have become what it is today: a successful international player in the wheel market and an established leader in technology and innovation," explained Yvo Schnarrenberger, RONAL GROUP CEO.

The anniversary convoy consists of five vehicles representing each decade from 1970 to 2019. At each stop employees are able to explore pavilions with information on the history of the company and enjoy an exciting program of show acts, live music and games – and receive a special anniversary present.
