About us

Welcome to Vlukon Wheel Systems

Vlukon is the Dutch market leader in the design, manufacture, and distribution of wheels related hardware products for agriculture and industrial use. With a history dating back to 1946, we have continually evolved and expanded to meet the growing demands of our customers.

Located in the heart of West-Europe, at the intersection of the borders of Germany, The Netherlands, and Belgium, our manufacturing facility in Vaals is strategically positioned to serve the European market efficiently.

Our commitment to excellence is evident in our use of premier quality raw materials, coupled with a semi-automated and flexible production facility. These factors, combined with our skilled engineering and manufacturing team, enable us to deliver high-quality products tailored to the specific needs of our end-users.

In 2017, we launched the "World Class Manufacturing Program," which has significantly reduced delivery times and increased our capacity to handle customer-specific parts requests and orders. This initiative is a testament to our dedication to continuous improvement and customer satisfaction.

Our product range includes a wide variety of wheels with pressed metal rims, ranging from 3” to 18”, including pneumatic wheels and solid-tyred wheels. These find applications in medium-duty horticulture, trailers, caravans, golf carts, lawnmowers, as well as heavy-duty and super-heavy-duty use in Agriculture, Forestry, and industrial applications.

Vlukon's branded metal rim is renowned for its unmatched quality in the market, a critical factor for end-users who demand reliability and durability.
