By now you’re probably wondering why the name “Rockford Autoparts” was chosen to describe a company that was once a car parts manufacturer but is now a manufacturer of titanium-plated parts.
The company was originally named Rockford-Aurora Automotive Parts, but the name was changed in late 2012 when Rockford Automotive filed for bankruptcy.
The name of the company was changed to Rockford Advanced Technologies to reflect the company’s current location.
Rockford’s focus on titanium parts is a major part of why the company is making a splash with a new kind of auto-parts company.
But the company has plenty of competition in the field.
A new startup called Titanium, which was recently acquired by the automotive company Kitecorp, also makes titanium parts for automotive companies.
Titanium is making titanium parts because it wants to provide the best possible experience for car buyers.
“We’re focused on creating high-quality titanium products that will be affordable for the consumer, and we’re really excited about the opportunity to partner with the industry leaders in titanium,” said Richard Rieck, co-founder and CEO of Titanium.
“It’s really exciting for us to have a partner who is bringing titanium into the automotive industry.”
The new company is still working out its business model, but it is working on developing an automated manufacturing platform for titanium parts that can be used to make products that are easier to order online.
The goal is to make Titanium parts that are more user-friendly and can be delivered to customers quickly.
The technology used for Titanium parts is called “Titanium Manufacturing System,” or TMS, which uses an advanced technology to make titanium parts from titanium alloys.
Titanium parts can be manufactured using traditional casting processes, which requires a lot of steel and other materials.
“Our manufacturing technology is the only technology that can produce titanium parts,” said Ron Guggenheim, cofounder and chief technology officer of Titanium, in an interview with Automotive News.
“That makes titanium products much easier to produce.”
The company is also looking to build on its success with titanium parts with titanium-alloy parts for the next generation of cars.
Guggens said the company plans to bring titanium-fiberglass products to market in 2020 and beyond.
He said the next major step for Titanium will be to develop an auto-sensor that uses TMS to detect the temperature and pressure of titanium parts in the engine compartment.
Titanium also plans to build a new auto-repair platform for auto parts that will combine TMS technology with the existing welding technology used in auto parts.
Gaggenheim said the TMS manufacturing process will make titanium-parts more efficient, because titanium parts are easier and safer to repair than conventional aluminum parts.
Rockwell Automotive, which owns the Rockford name, has been focused on automotive production since the early 1980s.
In 1996, Rockwell announced plans to move its production to its new headquarters in North Carolina.
In 2010, the company acquired Rockford and its existing business, which includes auto parts production.
In 2012, Rockwood bought the remaining assets of Rockford to create the Rockwood Automotive Group.
At the time, Rockerton Automotive was in the process of merging with Rockford.
Rockerton now owns all of Rockerton and its assets, including the Rockwell name.
The merger with Rockington is expected to close by the end of this year, according to the Rockerton announcement.
The new partnership with Titanium is a way to further capitalize on the growing interest in titanium parts, and Guggeres said Rockford is excited about this opportunity.
“Rockettas goal is always to be the best company in the industry in titanium-making, and I think that’s something we’ve achieved in the last couple of years,” he said.
“And to be able to bring our titanium expertise to this new product is really exciting.”
Guggers statement about the acquisition is somewhat contradictory.
He is excited that the company will be able “to create titanium-based automotive products, and to bring the expertise that we’ve gained over the last few years to this brand.”
But he also said the move to the new headquarters would create “significant challenges,” which he attributed to the company being new to the auto-part market.
Goggenheim did not immediately respond to a request for comment from AutomotiveNews.
