custom casters, Ergonomic & Productivity Improvements, heavy duty casters, our customers, We Build Trust

Caster Concepts Inc. begins ensuring the safety of our customers’ employees the second we begin designing your medium-to-heavy-duty industrial caster.

We recognize that a manufacturing environment can be fertile ground for injuries. For example, many companies use manual carts, or mechanical and laser guided carts and vehicles, to handle materials during manufacturing. To assume that these carts and vehicles are immune from causing worker injury can be a very costly mistake. Caster Concepts designs your casters and wheels for these carts and vehicles with an eye on safety first. In this way, we help our customers alleviate worker injuries, save money and preserve employee morale.

At Caster Concepts, we recognize that a company should never underestimate the repercussions of material handling-related claims for strains and sprains. Science supports our extra caution. According to a Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety study, the largest source of workers’ compensation claims and costs relate to materials handling (Dempsey and Hashemi, “Analysis of Workers’ Compensation Claims Associated with Manual Materials Handling,” Ergonomics, Vol. 42, No. 1, pp. 183-195, 1999.)

Consider the far-reaching consequences of an employee injury:

• Costs for medical treatment, workers’ compensation, and replacement workers
• Lost work and management time
• Diminished employee morale

To that end, Caster Concepts brings the many safety issues of hand manipulation applications to the forefront when designing your casters and wheels.

Some of our safety measures include:

• Push-and-pull testing for ergonomic performance
• Designing your casters and wheels to exact specifications with parts made in the United States.
• Optional toe guards, brakes and swivel locks
• Application engineered to ensure optimal performance

Helping our customers and their employees remain injury-free is one of the many ways Caster Concepts builds trust. We work diligently to keep our own employees safe, and we do the same for our customers.

In this way, We Build Trust into every single product.

At Caster Concepts Inc., we will work with you to find the product that best fits your needs.
