Donald to roll the wheels

Motorcycle giant Harley-Davidson Inc. has agreed to acquire a major portion of the assets of Australia-based Castalloy. Castalloy has been the sole supplier of cast motorcycle wheels and hubs to Harley- Davidson for the past 20 years. Post the acquisition of assets, a new wing will be formed in Adelaide called New Castalloy. This new wing will be a wholly owned operation of Harley- Davidson and will primarily focus on manufacturing. Donald Gogan, who has been with the Milwaukee- based motorcycle manufacturer since 1992, has been appointed as the Managing Director of this new venture.
