A West Michigan caster and wheel supplier expanded into Arizona with the acquisition of a similar company.
Jason Popma, president of Wayland-based CasterDepot, said Monday, Jan. 31, the company recently acquired Phoenix-based Tucson Truck and Caster.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
James Hagerty founded Tucson Truck and Caster in 1981 in Tucson, Arizona. In 1998, Hagerty opened the Phoenix facility, which now is its only location. Over the past 41 years, TTC has built a large client base and earned a reputation “as one of the premier caster distributors in Arizona,” according to CasterDepot.
“I’m excited to bring CasterDepot’s products and expertise to Tucson Truck and Caster’s customers,” Hagerty said. “They are widely known in the caster community as a company that cares and does things right.”
Family-owned and -operated since 1980, CasterDepot is an ISO 9001 QMS certified caster supplier known for its expertise in original equipment manufacturer and maintenance, repair and operation casters and wheels.
CasterDepot’s team of approximately 50 employees serves over 5,000 clients in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, including heavy-duty and industrial caster manufacturers such as Colson, Albion, Shepherd, Hamilton, RWM, Algood, Schioppa, Tente, Blickle, Foot Master and Darnell-Rose.
CasterDepot said it has on hand several million dollars of inventory, a 40,000-square-foot distribution center in Wayland and stocking centers in Chicago; Detroit; Indianapolis; Richmond, Virginia; Jacksonville, Florida; and now Phoenix.
