Kansas City, Missouri -DuraStar International, a manufacturer of casters and related wheel products, has now expanded its manufacturing capabilities to include press-on polyurethane tyres for forklift applications.
The Iron Horse product line is intended for new and aftermarket usage, and will include both drive wheels and load wheels, and forklift caster wheels, with more items under development.
"Although the Iron Horse product line does extend beyond our traditional customer base, it's definitely within the realm of our speciality," said Jack Johnson, president and general manager of DuraStar's Everest Casters business.
He added, "We know polyurethane wheels, and we know extreme heavy duty. Our refined techniques and bonding technology revolutionized the caster market, and testing results reveal DuraStar can positively penetrate the forklift industry."
Iron Horse wheels are available at Everest Caster for the US, Canada, and Mexico markets.
