The history of Rototilt®

For more than 30 years, Rototilt® has led the way in the development of tiltrotators. Together with machine couplers, control systems and tools, we are shifting the boundaries of what is possible.

The first Rototilt® tiltrotator saw the light of day in 1986. It was launched on the market by Umeå entrepreneur Rune Norgren at the company Noreco, who had purchased drawings along with the development and patent rights for the product from an inventor in southern Sweden.

At around the same time, Indexator began developing its own tiltrotator in Vindeln. A few years later it acquired the bankruptcy assets of Noreco, including the product rights, the Rototilt® brand and several technical solutions. And the journey from local invention to world leader has gone incredibly fast. Today, Rototilt® is the world's leading manufacturer of tiltrotator systems.
