Darnell Corporation: Making Magic Happen
Darnell Corporation was founded in 1921 by J.L. Chestnut in Long Beach, California. Chestnut pioneered an innovative caster construction which featured two ball races in the swivel head, an upper row for load weight, and a bottom row for lateral pressure. This design greatly reduced all points of friction and lateral pressure strain, facilitating easy movement across uneven surfaces. In 1988, the company was merged with the Rose Caster Company which focused on automotive steel casters and couplers.
Now going by the moniker Darnell-Rose
, the company operates as a subsidiary of Evans Industries (based in Detroit, Michigan) and is located in the City of Industry, California. Casters are swiveling wheels that are used to move heavy loads. These devices are applicable to a variety of industries including aerospace, medical, electronics, automotive, and other areas where mobility is required. The magician and illusionist David Blaine relies on the company’s StageMaster Goliath casters to move 10,000 pounds of water across the stage during performances. Darnell-Rose also produces wheels, rubber bumpers, industrial truck couplers, and conveyer systems. Modeled with the latest 3-D technology and manufactured solely in the United States, Darnell-Rose’s products are heat treated
for durability and are typically composed of solid compression, molded rubber wheels for heavy capacity endurance. The company’s product portfolio boasts over 10,000 products with a variety of specifications to suit any application. The company’s signature casters come in plate or stem and range from light duty to extra heavy duty (with a load capacity of up to 50,000 pounds per caster), from 1 5/8 inch to 20 inch wheel diameter, and come in a variety of finishes, including plating or powder.
