Clever wheel and tire solutions for industrial vehicles

We join forces with original equipment manufacturers to develop and deliver standard or bespoke wheel solutions to improve the performance of industrial vehicles.

We leverage on our leading position in site dumpers, wheels loaders and agricultural product range when partnering with manufactures of industrial vehicles. We see the demand for compact industrial vehicles is growing and want to put our expertise from other compact applications into play.
We have a standard range of assemblies and can offer a full supply setup; however we can also work as the integrator for customers that have a preferred tire brand, a preferred partner or specific preferences. By doing so, we deliver complete solutions and minimize cost and complexity in the customer’s supply chain.
Together with the customers, we optimise the distribution setup, the match between application and the wheel solution, or simplify the solutions across the customer’s product portfolio.

Manufacturing

Flexible wheel manufacturing and assembly setup specialised in both low and high-volume delivery of wheel and tire solutions.

Most of our wheels for this segment are produced in our ISO-certified Croatian factory and fitted with STARCO or other premium brand tires.
We have strong relationships with various tire manufacturers, however when our customers have another tire brand, we can smoothly adjust.
As part of the KENDA Group, we invest heavily in research and development globally and in Europe particularly.

This supports our development of tires for industrial vehicles.
All steel wheels manufactured by STARCO are e-coated, ensuring rust prevention and a high-quality durable finish. Next to an outstanding finish, all wheels used for the industrial industry are made in-house with automotive quality standards and solid documentation.

Solutions

Standard or high-quality bespoke wheel and tire solutions that go beyond industrial standards and ensure optimum application performance.

Our wheel and tire solutions cover various standard fittings in the market, for instance our popular AS Dumper and MP Dumper range. We keep developing the standard solutions, however new and bespoke design is part of how we create value for many customers.

Our cross-industry application know-how and product portfolio allow us to think different and use tires and wheels originally designed for one application for a totally different application. This is due to similar environment, specifications and usage. We know the European legislative variances across industries and ensure compliance.

Needless to say; we comply with and stay updated on legislative matters, for instance via our ETRTO membership. For the OEMs operating in both the USA and Europe we offer support for differences in legislative matters and standards.

Partnership

A strong solution provider with extensive wheel and tire experience ready to adjust supply setup to the customers’ needs

We know that price is often a key factor but acknowledge the value of strong collaboration. By working closer, we optimise customers’ product range and distribution flow. A long-term perspective often optimises the solutions and reduces costs for both parties.

Together with the customer, we optimise the distribution setup and specify a wheel and tire combination that matches the application and area of use better, or we simplify the wheel and tire combinations used across customers’ product portfolios. If our customer plans an expansion across the Atlantic, we are ready to follow.

We strive to deliver value beyond the products. These services differ from customer to customer and could be system integration for improved supply flow, integration of tire pressure management, or onsite training or tailored packaging.

Prolong the lifetime of your dumper tires

Here are some useful maintenance tips to prolong life of your dumper tires.

The dumper is the workhorse on most construction sites. Its job is to move material from one place to another operating in a full-empty-full-empty cycle. For the majority of the time, dumpers are used off-road in deep mud and generally harsh conditions. This sets special requirements for the wheels and tires.
