Our motivation to work is based on a pure unrivalled passion for Forged Wheels. We are driven bythis single goal, always striving for excellence in every action we take.
- Steve Jobs
Progress never stops. With our Innovation Centre focused on new technologies, strong partnerships to University research, and material science, neither do we.
- Michael Jordan
Our people are our most critical resource. With decades of OEM, motorsport & Formula One experience, our dedicated team offers unrivalled customer support and technical partnerships.
- Tony Hsieh
Working collaboratively, proactively and respectfully is, for us, the only way. Our perspective puts customers as colleagues, with the final end user as the 'real' customer. Working & succeeding together.

We do not rely on purchasing generic market alloy material. Instead, our in house technology allows us to formulate exactly the alloy we need for our customers, maximising the desired properties.
- Pat Riley
Rather than producing 'only' according to a brief, we search for the most efficient result for our customers requirements, offering alternative ideas and working together to achieve the best solution.
All colleagues are motivated by a simple desire to do the right thing for them and our customers, in open and positive environment. Delivering fully traceable, high quality is a daily state of operation, not a target.

Our sustainability is about choosing to consume less, reduce waste in all areas. If consumption is unavoidable, we work to recycle. For energy sources our primary target and long term goal will follow only green energy

ALUMINIUM AND MAGNESIUM
We are an Automotive Forged wheel specialist.
As 1st or 2nd tier, we supply the world's leading vehicle manufacturers
ALEXRIMS is part of ALEX GLOBAL Group, a technology company also active in broader market sectors:
"PEOPLE MAKE THE DIFFERENCE"
Internal formulation of the alloy chemistry gives total composition control, maximising mechanical properties. We produce Aluminium from 2000, 5000, 6000, 7000 series, through to Magnesium AZ80, Scandium, and customised alloys. Starting from Continually casted billets, up to 16" diameter.
All stages of tooling is designed and made in house for all the complete forging process.
We also develop our own hydraulic forging press technology for complete control over expansion and maintenance.
With multiple lines of hydraulic forging presses, with a capacity of up to 12.000T, we can deform large, dense, wheel blank sections.
Following the forging operation, we then flow form the rim section to obtain the desired width.
Where applicable, the T4/T6 heat treatment process then completes the cycle, to achieve the full mechanical properties and maximum strength final forged alloy.
Subsequent CNC machining operations take place from lathe turning through to milling in 3 Axis as well as 5 Axis, to produce the final wheel geometry.
Before any tooling manufacture comes the shape simulation, checking material flow and die fill inside the forging tool during deformation.
We also perform multi stage tooling simulation for complex net (3D) forging production.
In house tooling design and manufacture with
Simulation of the machining program.
Our CAM skills continue later in the wheel production also for analysis of the final wheel machining programming.
We use class leading CAD tools to develop the final wheel component from concept through to final surface approval.
Working in parallel with our customers throughout the development to achieve a digital sign off.
Digital evaluation of the wheel Design, simulating rig test fatigue failure limits as well as client CAE requirements for stiffness, modal frequencies & buckling calculations.
A key part of the technical partnership.
With current working patterns requiring greater flexibility & speed, we also use real time rendering of design proposals.
This allows for a greater confidence in digital surface approval and significant savings in cost & lead time.
Development success relies on a professional control of all milestones, planning & reacting to the project demands.
All partners must adapt to offer solutions for on time project deliveries and have the flexibility to make responsive changes.
Road vehicle wheel manufacture, for both OEM and motorsport applications.
Primarily single piece forged Aluminium & Magnesium.
From compact through to bus or heavy vehicle, we can support any commercial vehicle requirement. From 16" to 24.5" diameter, and 6" to 14" width.
Contact us to find out more!
Similar to road & race vehicles, we also support motorcycle applications, from OEM street to motorsport track use, in both Aluminium & Magnesium.
For automotive & aerospace applications, our net forging technology can be applied to suspension arms, wishbones, hub carriers and many more components.
The high capacity aluminium extrusion technology can further our range of solutions, together with a variety of material alloy solutions.
We are also one of the leading innovators in the world of bicycle wheel technology.
Our range of applications, materials and technology is unsurpassed.
