Reinventing the Wheel

You probably don’t give much thought to casters: the swivelling wheels that make your office chair roll and heavy equipment easy to move. At best you’d probably consider this a commodity item, a product left behind innovation, the sort of thing we don’t make in Canada anymore. But you’d be wrong. Tucked away in a gritty industrial street in northwest Toronto, Algood Casters is a surprisingly nimble manufacturer of an ever-growning line of casters for home, retail, and industrial use.

Max Guttmann was working so hard his sons would take him dinner once a week so they could see him. Eating and sleeping in his small plant, he put in seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. to build his fledgling company. That was in 1961, when the Czech-born tool-and-die maker set up shop in North York. His company, Algood Casters Ltd., now has sales of $5 million a year and employs 50 people.
