Caster Concepts, Inc., manufacturer of heavy duty industrial casters and wheels, today announced the addition of Conveyor Concepts to its family of businesses. Conveyor Concepts manufactures specialized components for the conveyor industry, including: conveyor rollers, drive assemblies, polyurethane wheels and many other related products.

Built on Caster Concepts’ custom manufacturing experience, Conveyor Concepts provides conveyor manufacturers and OEM designers quality subassemblies with short lead times.

“I am very excited about this new product group,” said President and CEO Dr. William Dobbins. “If you understand the core competencies of this unique business you will understand our move. We have 25 years of expertise in polyurethane, precision machining, fabrication and engineering - all working together to produce a product or solve a problem.”

However, the conveyor industry is not new for Caster Concepts, as it has provided products for bulk conveyors, automotive manufacturers and highly specialized custom conveyors for years. The company also has experience re-engineering failing components in heavy industry to prevent premature failure and extend cycle life. “In our experience, the demands on these conveyor systems are predictable, and using element analysis and advanced engineering there are opportunities for all involved,” stated Dr. Elmer Lee Director of Conceptual Innovations, the engineering arm for Conveyor Concepts.
