TR Fastenings and Tente Castors, a leading international castor and wheel manufacturer, are working together to enhance TR’s already extensive sheet metal range.
The existing product range included on the TR website has been enhanced with more than 150 new products. TR is now able to provide mobility solutions to a wide range of customers and applications from domestic furniture and laundry carts to hospital equipment and heavy duty industrial.
New products will include swivel braked castors, swivel castors and fixed castors with accessories such as circlip stems, stem plates and threaded stems. Wheel diameters are available from 14mm to 200mm, serving a wide range of applications.
Tente was attracted to working with TR to access and supply to its wide customer base in sectors such as health and home, energy, tech and infrastructure and general industrial. Produced in high-quality materials, including solid rubber or synthetic compounds, this range of castors is not only designed to be aesthetically pleasing but have longevity and increased whole-life efficiencies.
Further product features include load capacities ranging from 25kg up to 1,200kg and a wide variety of wheel tread options to suit different situations including polyurethane, polypropylene, polyamide, thermoplastic rubber, solid rubber and elastic rubber tread.
Sean Cushen, commodity manager at TR Fastenings, said: “Following on from the successful launch of our enclosure hardware products, this was a natural progression to add the Tente range. Having spent time with the Tente technical and manufacturing teams on site, we have got to know the brand and we are confident that we can work very closely together.”
Carl Garner, managing director of Tente Castors, said: “TR Fastenings is a global company with a respected reputation in servicing and supplying a wide range of products in many fields and applications. Tente is a global manufacturer with a wide range of castors and wheels to suit all industries needing the right mobility solution for all their customers.
“It was clear from an early stage, when I spoke with Glenda Roberts, TR global projects and marketing director at an exhibition and Sean Cushen at a networking event, that our two companies share many values and are passionate about exceeding customer expectations. We are now at the stage where both our companies can grow together through our teams and our brand.”
