We look at change as opportunity
Gurnee, IL (Vocus) January 26, 2009
The future, or fate, of the General Motors Hummer brand will be decided by March 31. That hasn't swayed one northern Illinois automotive accessory manufacturer from keeping the faith in Hummer. Since 1996, RealWheels Corporation has been manufacturing Genuine Hummer H1 accessories for AM General. Today they design and fabricate hundreds of enhancement products for a variety of vehicle brands, including the complete Hummer line and now the new H3T.
This commitment and investment to a vehicle isn't only a financial decision. "When I purchased my first Hummer H1 in 1997 and drove off-road, I was hooked," stated Jan Polka, President of RealWheels. "I'll be the first to admit that like thousands of others, I have an emotional attachment to the Hummer." With the number of Hummer's currently on the road and the introduction of the H3T, this continues to be a very viable market for RealWheels.
RealWheels offers the largest assortment of Hummer aftermarket accessories in the world. International sales of Hummer vehicles have opened doors for RealWheels in Europe, the Middle East and recently South Africa. "The Hummer brand is truly known around the world," commented Jhan Dophin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at RealWheels. "We regularly ship substantial orders overseas and domestic sales have been steady."
The majority of Hummer accessories that RealWheels offers are designed to enhance the look of the Hummer. Stainless steel and chromed billet trim along with formed tubular side steps, tail light guards and grille guards are available for all Hummer models. "We offer numerous accessories in both chrome and black finishes along with a few performance upgrades, although our goal for each is the same -- to help owners enhance their Hummer experience and personalize their ride," added Dolphin.
As the fate of the Hummer is decided by the powers that be, RealWheels is confident in their ability to adapt and change accordingly. "We look at change as opportunity," explained Polka. "We create accessories for compact cars, all the way up to big rigs. So no matter what General Motors decides, we'll continue to create ways for Americans to make their vehicles unique." Rest assured, regardless of the outcome, the Hummer brand will forever be part of American automotive history.
