Frantz Manufacturing Company was established in 1909 as a manufacturer of builder’s hardware. In the 1930’s, Frantz acquired a toy manufacturing company with a product line that included roller skates. Among the customers for skate wheels were material handling manufacturers who used the wheels in unit handling conveyors. While the toy division faded, the need for conveyor wheels grew and lived on.
The wheel line was broadened and extensively modified and improved to meet the need of 21st century global distribution. In 1947, the Sterling Steel Ball Division was established to manufacture and supply steel balls for bearing and wheel production. Sterling Steel Ball has since become a supplier of balls to the automotive, toy, cosmetic and paint industries.
Today Frantz sets the standard of excellence in the conveyor component and steel ball market segments where it competes. Consultative working relationships with its customers, engineer to engineer, enables Frantz to innovate solutions that solve customer problems and deliver value, rather than just sell product.
