With extensive experience in the off-highway and industrial markets, we continue to develop innovative solutions to meet tomorrow’s challenges, developing ever-more technologically advanced systems that enable our customers to produce efficient and environmentally sustainable vehicles and machinery.
At GKN Wheels we are known for our solutions-led approach and can share many case studies on how we approach this. One is example is the development of bespoke solutions for off-highway applications to meet specific, and often challenging, conditions. Demonstrated in a collaborative project with leading material handling manufacturer, the company wanted to differentiate its products from competitors, which ultimately led to the development of a solution that delivered enhanced telehandler stability, greater tread life and lower operating costs. These examples show how wheels should be adapted for specific environments, challenges and to meet a variety of demands. The off-highway sector is very broad, and within this industry every market will have its own individual needs and wants.
