COLSON GROUP LAUNCHES NEW LINE OF MAINTENANCE FREE CASTERS

OAKBROOK TERRACE, IL., December 6, 2022— Colson Group, the leader in caster and wheel products, announces their Albion brand launch of a new line of Maintenance Free casters. The new 28 and 38 Series casters are designed for improved ergonomics, long life, and quiet mobility.

The new Maintenance Free casters are equipped with a sealed precision swivel bearing. This makes it so they never require a preventative maintenance schedule, which reduces downtime and increases efficiency. They also feature wheel options such as polyurethane, rubber, and nylon, to fit your specific hand push or towing requirements.

The 28 and 38 Series casters extended leads significantly reduces push / pull force. This increases the safety and effectiveness of equipment operators. Their ease of use helps to prevent employee injuries and provides the performance customers require to keep their business rolling safely and easily.

“With the newly designed 28 and 38 series, maintenance free also means worry-free and helps provide an injury free workplace,” said Scott Fisher, Director of Heavy Duty Vertical Sales.

As a world leader in design and production, Albion is proud to manufacture some of the highest quality made in the USA casters in the market. To stand by their quality and performance, Albion brand’s new line of Maintenance Free 28 and 38 Series casters are backed by a 5-year warranty guarantee.

Maintenance-free casters are designed for harsh industrial environments. The consistent performance of these casters makes a great choice for industries like automotive, warehousing, tow-lines, AGV’s, hospitals and more.
