Leading the Industry in Quality Caster Engineering

Back To Blog

While the engineering and craftmanship that go into each of our casters, wheels, and material handling products are complex, our goal has remained unchanged for the past 85 years: to build products with unmatched durability, unequaled longevity, and unerring application – every single time.

As the inventor of the market-leading Kingpinless™ caster, we were the first to craft the best solution for demanding and arduous terrain. Our world-renowned Kingpinless™ casters are known overseas as “American-style casters,” and they are now copied worldwide. However, our original and patented design has never been improved upon by others and is still recognized as the market-leading choice!

Expert Wheels & Casters for Every Application

At RWM, we understand the importance of the correct caster for your intended application – whether you rely on premium wheels and casters for aerospace, automotive, industrial, or agricultural manufacturing, RWM provides comprehensive, as well as customized, solutions to meet your needs. From the efficient performance of the light- and medium-duty casters, to the brute strength of our larger, single and dual wheel Kingpinless™ casters, our emphasis is consistently on the perfect match for the task at hand.

Modern Manufacturing & Production Techniques

Our primary mission at RWM is to continue developing and manufacturing the high-value casters, wheels, and material handling products for our worldwide customer base. We maintain a reputation that places us at the leading edge of superior engineering through our modern manufacturing techniques and comprehensive customer service.
