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 tiltrotator with the Rototilt® brand saw the light of day in 1986. Following the purchase of product drawings along with the development and patent rights from an inventor in the south of Sweden, Umeå entrepreneur Rune Norgren (from the Noreco company) first launched it onto the market.
At around the same time, Indexator (the company name back then) began developing its own tiltrotator in Vindeln. Several years later, Indexator acquired Noreco bankruptcy assets including product rights, the Rototilt® brand and several technical applications. From this time the journey from local invention to world leader went incredibly fast.. Today, Rototilt® is the world's leading tiltrotator.
