More than 30 years with the Rototilt® tiltrotator
The Rototilt® tiltrotator turned 30 a couple of years ago. Rototilt celebrated with the planning of inernational expansion. "This is something I would not have dared dream about in the beginning. But now that tiltrotators have become an essential part of excavators here at home in Scandinavia, we’re ready to take further strides out into the world," said Rototilt Group CEO, Anders Jonsson.
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 worldwide industry-changer has gone incredibly fast. Rototilt® is now one of the world's leading manufacturers of tiltrotator systems with a product line consisting of tiltrotators, control systems, machine couplers, accessories and tools.
