Jonesboro, Arkansas, – Colson Caster Corporation, the world’s leading manufacturer of standard and custom application caster and wheel products, has announced its newest line of heavy duty wheels for mass distribution: the Commander HD. The innovative wheel is designed for superior performance in some of the most abusive applications and environments where high-load requirements and impact resistance are a must.

“As with all of our wheel products, the new Commander HD wheel is backed by Colson’s industry leading, three-year warranty. The wheels were designed, engineered and rigorously tested to insure the quality, performance and competitiveness that we require,” said Charles Harris, testing and quality manager for Colson Group USA. “Our customers asked for an extremely heavy-duty wheel alternative that protects floors and holds up to corrosive environments, and the Commander wheel is that product.” Once again, our customer input has served as momentum for a new product.”
