Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/15/2014 -- Magline, Inc., the innovative lightweight route distribution company, and Rotacaster, maker of the first multi-directional industrial wheel, developed a partnership with exclusive rights to the “Self-Stabilizing” truck in the U.S.
Peter McKinnon, Managing Director for Rotacaster expressed his excitement about the Magline partnership, “At Rotacaster we are extremely proud about our engagement with Magliner, the pioneer in innovative manual materials handling solutions. Rotacaster Wheel is extremely excited to be working with Magline toward continuing this leadership with the introduction of the self-stabilizing hand truck and other innovative solutions. We look forward to a close and productive partnership.”
Andrea Horner, Marketing Manager for Magline, expressed pleasure about the new partnership, “We are excited to partner with Peter McKinnon and the entire Rotacaster team. Their creative prowess regarding workplace safety and ergonomics in the material handling sector is a welcome addition to the Magliner family of products.”
The Self-Stabilizing technology includes Rotacaster wheels. The fixed orientations of the main wheel allows forward and reverse movement without fighting a swivel caster offset, while the peripheral rollers facilitate turning, rotational, lateral and diagonal movement. When navigating turns this also eliminates all skipping associated with fixed wheels making maneuvering product deliveries more efficient.
Magliner is at the forefront of developing products that address the unique material handling requirements from distribution centers to delivery. Magliner is the leader in hand trucks worldwide and is looking to expand the strong dealer base in various regions domestically, as well as internationally. Dealers and distributors from the Southeast, Southwest, and Western regions of the United States, and all international dealers are encouraged explore the opportunity of representing a strong, well-respected, brand.
