Our company was founded in 2006 by Jan Veen. Already from an early age Jan entered into the caster business where he worked for various leading manufacturers and resellers. His service driven mindset ultimately make him decide to start his own business. Starting in the scaffolding castor business, becoming a key player in the Benelux within a very short time, and decide to expand to a very wide range of castors.
Nowadays One for Wheels is serving a wide range of markets in various countries.
Since then the team and factory has been expanded rapidly. We believe in the globalisation of our business and the positive effect Information technology can have on our business.
The new generation has taken over the business and is transforming the company rapidly.
With already a good network within the scaffolding industry, One for Wheels was founded and got off to a quick start. Initially, sales were mainly directed to professionals in scaffolding in the traditional way. The range has grown steadily over the years.
Customers were happy about the service provided so started to ask for other products. Soon Castors were added to the range. Production capacity was extended.
In the early years of the company, a new way of selling was introduced into the business; E-commerce. At the time, it started as a small sales channel, but a very interesting platform due to its reach. So that's why the first webshop wielenoutlet.nl was opened. The website soon became known in the market as supplier of high-quality wheels for a very competitive price.
With the growth in turnover, there was also a need for a new warehouse. In 2012 a new building with additional 1.500 m2 storage capacity was purchased, which provided much more room for growth. That year, sales nearly doubled, so the team expanded too. This provided the foundation for growth in the following years.
With the extra space created, more customers could be served. This also led to a significant expansion of the range. Now with the production of +400 different wheels and 95% stock keeping, we have grown into one of the leading wheel specialists in the Netherlands.
The first steps across the border were in Germany. In addition to a German store (Lenkrollenshop.de), the account management and customer service team were also expanded with German-speaking wheel specialists. The store was an immediate success, as the specialism and ease that One for Wheels brought to the market with their e-commerce platform was very well received by our German clients. Soon other countries would follow.
Now that the business has evolved and E-commerce is in the company's root, Jan decided to hand over the business to a newer generation of entrepreneurs. The company is now ready for the next step into the future...
