Ronal AG is a manufacturer of wheels for cars and commercial vehicles, with its headquarters in Härkingen, Switzerland. The company employs more than 6000 personnel and produces both cast and forged wheels. The company is active on both the OEM and aftermarket for cars and commercial vehicles.


Ronal AG has eleven wheel production facilities, two factories for tool manufacturing and has its own sales locations in ten countries. The company produces approximately 19 million wheels annually for the automotive industry and its own brands Ronal, Speedline Corse and Speedline Truck.

SanSwiss GmbH, a manufacturer of shower units, based in Forst in Baden Württemberg, also belongs to Ronal AG.


Ronal was founded in Germany in 1969 by Karl Wirth. The entrepreneur and Formula V driver saw a need for aluminum wheels. Wirth thus became one of the pioneers of light alloy wheels on the global market. The first factory was opened back in 1978 in France. In 2007 Ronal AG purchased Italian wheel manufacturer Speedline, which covers the commercial vehicle segment including trucks, trailers and buses. This helped the group expand into the racing and Formula 1 sectors as well as into weight-optimized flow forming technology. Over 70 FIA titles have been won on Speedline Corse wheels. In 2012, Ronal expanded its range to include forged wheels with the majority stake in Fullchamp in Taiwan. In 2013, Ronal AG joined forces with the Australian company, Carbon Revolution, to launch the first one-piece carbon wheel on the European market.
