Careers with Wheels Manufacturing

Yes this is the view we look at out our office windows here on the front range of Colorado.

At Wheels Mfg, bicycles are a passion and we believe America can still produce things. We provide innovative and problem solving products to thousands of shops worldwide and distribute our products through a global network of distributors. We produce a majority of our products in our facility right here in Louisville, Colorado. Louisville is close to everything great about living in Colorado and one of the best small towns in the country to live in, year after year. Miles of open space buffer us from larger cities and give us lots of room to ride, push strollers, and walk the dogs. Located in Eastern Boulder county, our state of the art facility boasts dedicated parking for bikes indoors and plenty of room in the lot for your Subaru. An hour away is mountains to explore and hills to conquer.

We are dedicated to expansion of our line of problem-solving products and we won’t be deterred from producing those products in the USA. We feel manufacturing in the cycling industry is much more than waiting for containers of cheaply produced foreign parts to come through the door to be repurposed into quality products that won’t last a lifetime. Many of the products produced within these walls when we opened in 1988 are still out there in use, every single day.

We live, sleep, and breathe bikes here at Wheels Mfg.  Bikes are more than just a passing fancy or a hobby, they are a way of life. If you love cycling as much as we, Wheels Mfg is looking for you!
