ALBION, Mich., March 20, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Caster Concepts, a leading manufacturer of industrial heavy-duty casters and wheels, announced today that their innovative TWERGO® ergonomic caster wheel has earned the industry’s first Ergonauts ergonomic approval.

We are committed to continuous innovation to improve our customers’ safety and productivity.”

The TWERGO® caster line is built around patented technology features a multiple-wheel-in-one design. The tapered wheels spin independently and can rotate in either direction and at any rate. The advantages of this unique design include minimized friction and reduced initial and continuous push force, as well as the associate force exerted to turn.
