About Us – BIL Castors & Wheels

BIL Castors and Wheels is a UK manufacturing division within the BIL Group based in Calne, Wiltshire.

Our history

BIL Castors and Wheels is where things began for the entire group. Tracing its origins back to 1972, BIL started life as a small castor and wheel distributor for the Revvo and Flexello ranges before establishing further ranges and introducing our BIL Material Handling division.

As years passed and the company grew, BIL Group relocated from its original site to much larger premises in Calne with an eventual MBO taking place in 2007. From this, a new vision evolved and with a fresh management team in place, the division began investing internationally in new product tooling enabling us to introduce our own BIL branded castor and wheel ranges and becoming recognised as an outright manufacturer rather than just a distributor. This in turn allowed us to take full control on both costs and quality control and quality remains at the forefront of all we do.

What we do today

The division now serves an extensive and impressive list of industries and sectors including; General fabrication, Bakeries, Theatre, Aerospace, Automotive, and Food manufacturing to name a few. We supply some partners with thousands of castors and wheels a year and others for just a single use requirement  but whatever the requirement, every customer is treated with the same dedication from our team.  

The team

The key to our success is our staff. We are like a family (some of us actually are!) and work together to ensure we are maximising our potential and growing together. We share the same values and always want what is best for our customers. This, along with consistently high standards and close collaboration with our customers (who we prefer to recognise as partners) ensures we continue to deliver Quality, Innovation, Service & Flexibility.

Stock holding

Our castors and wheels ranges are vast and our stock holding at headquarters sits at over £1.6m in cost value meaning we can offer a fast delivery on many of our product lines.

Projects

In addition to providing off the shelf products, our manufacturing capabilities mean we can work with our partners in a design led approach to deliver bespoke requirements. Our project team lead the way with innovation and a flexible approach to provide you with the solution you need. Customer feedback forms a huge part of the business model. It is only from this can we expect to improve current product lines and begin to understand how potential new product lines may benefit our customers and the industries we serve.

Quality Control

All of our ranges are manufactured to ISO9001:2015 standards, independently tested and certified to BS EN 12530/12532:1999 & BS EN 12527:1999 standards so you can be sure that the load capacity is reliable and product is of high quality, fully suitable for your needs and requirements. We are also the only castor and wheel manufactures with in house testing capabilities!

Our main goal is to provide the very best quality product to satisfy our customers’ requirements – and integrating our virtues fully is key to our success.
