We develop and manufacture light-weight and high-quality wheel and tyre solutions for almost any application for light transportation.

Our knowledge of wheelbarrows goes back to the days when we manufactured them ourselves. Now, we specialise in developing and manufacturing wheel solutions for European market-leading manufacturers of wheelbarrows and other applications.

The solutions in this segment, that are manufactured in Europe, range from 4” to 12” and fit well on trolleys, sack trucks, wheelbarrows and special tools for construction work.

Our launch of the puncture-proof wheelbarrow tyre in 2006 was a game changer. Today, puncture-proof tyres are commonplace in the market. STARCO-branded solutions range from high-end to standard, and the STARCO Flex iCore®, STARCO Flex Pro and STARCO Flex lite are among the most popular.

We supply a variety of puncture-free tyre and wheel solutions. Customers can order wheels and tyres separately, or as complete wheel assemblies ready for their production lines, configured according to their specifications.


Our independent Technical Department is complimented and supported with strong engineering teams in both of our European manufacturing locations. Steel wheels are produced in Croatia and specialist polymer wheels and puncture-proof tyres are produced in the UK.

We are the largest Europe-based manufacturer of puncture-proof wheels and tyre solutions in this segment.


High-quality wheel and tyre solutions for trolleys, sack trucks and wheelbarrows ranging from 4” to 12” are developed with extensive wheel and tyre experience for improved end-user experience.

A 4” pneumatic tyre on a 4″ steel wheel or a 12” puncture-proof solution? We offer various combinations to ensure the optimum wheel and tyre solution for your application. We advise to ensure the optimum fit between application, wheel/tyre and intended use.


Tailored supply solutions that ensure excellent delivery performance, and a dedicated team ready to support your business.

Our supply setup is geared to handle our customers’ different demands. We deliver throughout Europe and the USA from our central warehouse or directly from our UK factory. We are ready to handle daily requests or discuss long-term forecasting to ensure the optimum solutions for our customers.
We serve the replacement market through our OEM customers’ distribution network and key partners.
