Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/31/2014 -- Magline, Inc. has developed innovative lightweight route distribution solutions for the last 100 yards of delivery. Magline, Inc., and Rotacaster, maker of the first multi-directional industrial wheel, have teamed to produce a Self-Stabilizing truck in the U.S. The hand truck is the newest of innovations by Magline. 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.
Andrea Horner, Marketing Manager for Magline, commented, “Rotacaster’s creative prowess regarding workplace safety and ergonomics in the material handling sector is a welcome addition to the Magliner family of products.”
Peter McKinnon, Managing Director for Rotacaster noted, “Rotacaster Wheel is extremely excited to be working with Magline toward continuing this leadership with the introduction of the self-stabilizing hand truck that have the potential to provide huge benefits in productivity, ergonomics, and safety for users, especially in the last 100 yards of the supply chain. We look forward to a close and productive partnership.”
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.
