Welcome to Coldene Wheels and Castors. Our mission is ‘buying wheels and castors…made easy’ and this, quite simply, is what we are about.

We started life in 2005 as a small, rural business dedicated to making things easier for our target market. We must have done the right thing, as we are now a market leader, having experienced year-on-year growth every year since we were formed.

In our quest for simplicity we have evolved from a distributor to a business who designs, manufactures and supplies exactly what our customers need.

If you do business with Coldene, it really is buying wheels and castors….made easy!

Coldene Automotive plant castor

We have used the same castors for the last twenty years without any problems – however recently our product changes has meant our trailers are now carrying higher loads and working faster to feed our production line which is not helped by extremely poor road conditions, potholes and drains everywhere which the trailer are being pulled over.

Coldene looked at our old product along with the environment and totally redesigned and manufactured a much more robust solution we have retained all the key dimensions so the new castor bolts straight onto our existing applications the new design has even managed to reduce the unit weights by 15kgs which helps my engineers when fitting the castors.

I am very impressed

Customer Case Study 

Our customer is a leading manufacturer of educational equipment across the UK. They provide educational services with tables, chairs, cabinets and trolleys, all manufactured within the UK.

The original manufacturer of the castors used on their applications was US-based, with long lead times.

Our Challenge

We needed to reduce lead times while sticking to imperial measurements and maintaining all elements of the original design.

Our solution

We held design briefing meetings which allowed us to identify a European castor and design and manufacture an imperial spigot.

 

“We saved thousands on shipping from America. Coldene was spot on.”
