Forty years ago Chris Weston had a mountain of work in front of him. Then he realized how to climb that mountain… with big wheels! Today, Weston’s on top of the world of wheels and rims, with RIMEX Supply Ltd., a company with an impressive past and a confident future.
It all began with an old pickup truck, a stack of wheels in the back, and a desire to make a difference.

Chris was attuned to the changing marketplace – as mining trucks got bigger, the wheels had to be larger and stronger.
