The company Blickle

A reliable partner for many years.

A family business since 1953

In 1953, Wilhelm Sülzle split his well-established ironware factory into three separate companies, divided between his sons and his son-in-law, Heinrich Blickle. The new company, called Blickle, took over the production of iron wheelbarrow wheels and established a range of high quality wheels, rigid casters and swivel casters. Typically Swabian virtues like hard work, an obsession with quality and the spirit of invention caused our products to continuously improve. After the sudden death of the founder Heinrich Blickle, his wife Elisabeth Blickle took over the management of the company in 1961.

Managing Director Reinhold Blickle is the son of the founder and manages the company together with his wife Denise Blickle, Walter Wager and his two children, Dr. Sarah Blickle-Fenner and David Blickle, who joined the management team in 2017. Blickle has developed into one of the world’s leading manufacturers of wheels and casters over the past few decades. Blickle has never lost sight of the traditional values of a family company despite all of its progress. This philosophy will remain intact with the third generation of management.

The Blickle group currently has around 1,300 employees worldwide, with over 900 based at the headquarters in Rosenfeld, Germany. Trained technical advisers at 20 sales subsidiaries in Europe, America, Asia and Australia with distribution offices in 120 countries ensure proximity to customers and high-quality service. Our cutting edge logistics center guarantees top-class delivery performance: we can send out more than 8,000 products within a day and 12,000 others in 1 to 3 days, Europe-wide.

We have a tradition of progress

To be successful, you need to look to the past to learn how to prepare for the future. We have a tradition of progress. Founded in 1953, today we are one of the three leading manufacturers of wheels and casters worldwide. That’s proof of our expertise. Quality. And innovation.
