Priory Castor & Engineering Company Limited is a privately owned business that has been manufacturing castors since 1938. We have great flexibility in the range of product we can deliver. This is because we have our own onsite tool room, moulding, and presswork facilities. This allows us to offer special adaptations and bespoke design products.

Castors can simply be described as swivelling wheels, attached to the legs or base of a heavy piece of furniture or equipment that allow it to be moved easily. However, one size and style does not work as well for all applications. We have a standard range of castors available for most typical uses. One of our strengths is our ability to custom design castors any way you want. It is a matter of adapting our standard products to suit your particular requirements. We can design hard or soft tyres in the colour and material you want.

This ability also applies to having the capacity to manufacture heavy duty castors to handle heavier and larger industrial applications or commercial office equipment. Heavy duty castors that can withstand the pressures of industrial needs are a specialty of ours. To move an item weighing more than a thousand pounds per castor, you will need heavy duty castors.

Extra heavy duty selections are also available. Whether it is a trolley to move heavy loads or a piece of large and weighty office equipment with built in castors, we either have what you need as part of our standard stock and design or we can custom build what you require. While we manufacture with polyurethane, nylon, and plastic, we also use iron and steel. Industrial castors with grey rubber wheels and cast iron fittings are a choice. So are castors with a nylon wheel design. The choice of rubber tyre can be 100mm, 125mm, or 200mm.

Bespoke fittings can be designed to enable rapid and cost effective assembly in production line situations. For example, we can build a socket that can be inserted, permitting rapid fitting of the castor. Castors can be supplied with parts missing to permit fitting in completely different applications or we can build a castor without a peg enabling the castor to be welded to its application.

Priory can assemble the braked castor version you need, using parts from different standard products, as well as by adapting standard products by incorporating non-standard components. An example is constructing a special stem fitting for a non-standard wheel colour. We can also manufacture an entirely bespoke design, designing it from scratch to meet your very specific requirements.

We can do this because we have our own in-house design and engineering capabilities. We are able to adapt standard products or, alternatively, bespoke designs can be prepared using CAD facilities. This has the further advantage of allowing us to have strict control over all manufacturing processes so that you can be assured that all products meet the very highest standards of quality and reliability is consistently maintained.

Our experts are on hand to advise you on the best choice for your environment and requirements. For more information, please click here or give us a call.
