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, fixed castors and swivel castors. 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 castors 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 over 1,200 employees worldwide, with around 900 based at the headquarters in Rosenfeld, Germany.
