Quality is the driving force behind every Colson product. This is why we continue to invest in state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and people who know how to use it. Specially trained personnel using the latest computer controlled technology deliver high levels of quality impossible to achieve using conventional methods.
To provide our customers an added measure of confidence, sample casters are continually subjected to torturous destruction tests that simulate hostile operating conditions. These tests, conducted in our specially designed lab, aid our team of design, production and manufacturing engineers to further perfect the Colson product.
Colson offers more than 35,000 different caster models – from tiny chair casters to giant industrial models that carry 4,800 pounds each. With this broad selection the "special" caster you need is probably a standard Colson model.
New Product Innovations
As the recognized leader in new product design and development, Colson is on the cutting edge of caster and wheel technology. We have pioneered many new caster innovations offering major improvements in both performance and value to our customers. Several of these new designs have become industry standards by which all others are judged.
When you choose Colson you get more than a wide selection of quality casters. You get the advantage of a professional service network committed to personal attention.
Your Colson Sales Coordinator is just a toll-free call away. Each coordinator is well prepared to help you with specifications, pricing and delivery information.
Colson stocking distributors are your local "caster experts" who can service your needs with "off-the-shelf" delivery on many standard Colson models.
For on-site assistance Colson District Managers provide the personal touch. These factory representatives have years of "hands-on" experience solving caster problems in the field.
