Coldene Blockbusting Success

Since Coldene was established in 2005 we have been supplying our products for major Hollywood blockbuster movies, produced in studios around the UK and Europe. Recently our castors have been featured in Star wars, the new Fast & Furious Hobbs & Shaw and the The Curse James Bond 25. Unfortunately, our products rarely make a main screen appearance but behind the sense they keep the production rolling.

News Letter June 2019

Our manufacturing capability is really opening doors for us with some very exciting projects currently in progress.

One such project is the provision of our  Automotive Sprung Loaded Castors which are 100% made in the UK by us.

Our client has an existing application where the castors were failing due to increased load demand. Our UK design engineers redesigned, improved and strengthened the castors while managing to save 15 kg off the unit weight (which was another client requirement).

We are proud that every aspect of this project has been completed by Coldene. This achievement is especially important because it now means  we have the ability to compete with our European rivals.

ISO Container Castors T24

Our heavy duty 24-tonne container castors have undergone a design review after client feedback reported that the old design was heavy and therefore difficult to manoeuvre into position and attach to the ISO container. We have therefore added a jockey wheel and arm to aid the movement and positioning of the castor.. Heavy lugging is now a thing of the past.

Coldene’s container castors ‘cast’ in starring role

Container castorsColdene has been left star struck after supplying the UK Film industry with several sets of our 12 and 24 ton ISO Container castors. In true acting style, the castors aren’t actually fulfilling their intended purpose; instead their load capacity and high quality design has made them the perfect choice for a bespoke piece of equipment to be used on set.

rebonds

 

With Christmas fast approaching we have supplied some major blue-chip companies with products required for their festive operational ramp up. Demand for garment rails meant our client required 10,000 castors within a week. We were happy to help and successfully supplied all products from our UK stock. Our Automotive client needed to ensure his Automated Guided Vehicles would be happy working over the festive
period. In preparation we fitted a number of new tyres through our rebond service. We collected vehicles from site, completed the rebond and delivered them back all within 7 days resulting in a very happy customer.
