The article focuses on the move of Downum's Waste Services in Northeast Arkansas to seek out the services of Colson Caster Corp. to solve the wheel failure problem of its waste containers in Arkansas. Sales engineers from the caster company identified the issues of wheel failure such as roller bearings and the caster's lock up. It was fortunate that the caster company has launched its wheel product with a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) tread which exceeded expectations after testing.
