Modena is famous throughout the world for high quality engineering and excellent design. F.I.R. is one of the leading manufacturers of wheels and casters for the industrial and service sectors and is proud to be a part of the Modena engineering tradition.

F.I.R. was founded by Enrico Rota who pioneered the technologies and use of advanced materials that have made the company very successful. Today, F.I.R. is a leading manufacturer of stainless steel casters and wheels in polyamide and polyurethane.

In recent years, the F.I.R. success story has been the result of injection molding of elastic polyurethane. Our wheels are perfect for electric vehicles, robots, scrubber-driers, AGV and indoor mobility systems.

The acquisition of a tooling unit in 2014 has made possible the design and building of molds for the production of new wheels and for modifying existing ones. The result is very flexible production and the capacity to design and produce customized products.
