We learn every client’s distinctive specifications, becoming as much like an employee as possible without being on the payroll. We’ll organize your shelves and streamline the way you order manufacturing, maintenance, and industrial hardware. We also stock thousands of specialty products in our warehouse, providing quick access to those critical parts you only need occasionally. And our selection and expertise with casters and caster manufacturing are unparalleled.
Our state-of-the-art, 112,000 square foot, commercial powder coating facility is the largest between the Rockies and the Appalachians. With 2 production lines and a batch booth parts window large enough for a truck bed, we have the capacity and capabilities to meet tight deadlines.
Conveyors by Uniflo are custom built to efficiently transfer your unique materials and keep the line moving. Our specialists will come and install your conveyor system to ensure smooth operation.
Consider us your personalized inventory squad, on a mission to help you build better and faster. We’ll be on hand to organize, track, and restock your inventory as necessary, freeing you and your staff to focus on more pressing matters. We’ll even prepare and submit pre-orders for your approval, eliminating untimely restocking delays. With our dedicated specialists managing your hardware line, your team members can remain focused on production without being interrupted by hardware management duties.
Supplies – We become well-versed in each client’s processes, to ensure we consistently maintain a supply of every part necessary to keep the lines running smoothly. We have access to countless parts and components, many of which we keep stocked at our warehouse. And we’re pros when it comes to sourcing the more evasive parts, so you’ll no longer lose precious hours (or patience) in an attempt to locate them. We continuously add new, client-specific items to our inventory, and have come to the rescue of former clients on more than a few occasions — earning their return business and their loyalty.
When it comes to casters, the lowest price doesn’t translate to the best value. Although it can appear as if all casters are the same, what you don’t see makes all the difference. You wouldn’t use wheels with hardware that’ll rust easily in a high-humidity environment. You wouldn’t trust light duty casters to transport extreme weight, either.
Now you’re probably thinking it would be easy to get what you need online, but with the huge variety of casters available, finding the right ones too frequently happens through costly trial and error. And to add confusion, while most caster manufacturers use the exact same materials, many of them call the specific compounds by a different name, making it complicated to cross-reference across brands. It’s kind of like trying to figure out which aftermarket wiper blade inserts will work as replacements for your vehicle, except on a much wider scale.
Fortunately, IHD Solutions has two in-house specialists in our Kansas City office with over half a century combined experience across the caster manufacturing industry, so not only do we speak the language, but we know what works and what doesn’t. Whether you’re a manufacturer or reseller, tap into our knowledge. We’ll guide you in the right questions to ask, so you can make application-specific recommendations without being an expert on casters. And we can custom build and install casters when you need them too. So, instead of investing countless hours trying to figure out what we already know, contact us today and we’ll help you keep things rolling steadily along.
Kitting – One of your best options for improving operating efficiencies is to let us build the kits so your team can focus on their specialties. We understand the more basic tasks aren’t always the most effective use of higher wages. We also know how easy it can be to get distracted and either grab the wrong piece or miss a part altogether, especially when you’re multi-tasking to get everything done. We have a cost-effective solution — simply provide us with your bills of materials and we’ll fulfill your kits with speed and accuracy time after time.
Sub-Assembly – Your production time will experience a noticeable improvement when you partner with IHD Solutions to assemble your manufactured components. We’ll purchase the fabricated hardware and fittings, then paint and assemble them to your specifications so they’re ready for your team to install, saving you many hours and a lot of hassle. And if you’re short on storage space, we can warehouse your assembled pieces and deliver them when you’re ready to use them.
