Bristol based plant and equipment dealer Molson Group, have been appointed as a UK distributor by Rotobec, a world leading grapple and attachment manufacturer.

Following the expansion of the Sennebogen range available from Molson to include Scrap and Port handlers, the addition of Rotobec to the Molson range was a natural progression as Molson continues to solidify its “Single Source Supply” offering to the scrap, recycling and port industries.

Rotobec manufactures highly durable attachments which have been purpose built for scrap recycling, waste handling, construction and bulk material handling applications. Seen as a perfect fit for the expanded range of Sennebogen machines available at Molson, the Rotobec range will be available throughout the UK from the scrap, recycling and ports experts at Molson Green.

Rotobec were first established in 1975 in Quebec, Canada. The name Rotobec signifies “Rotators” of Quebec. The company introduced some of the first rotating hydraulic systems used within the forest industry. Following this, the company continued to add serval products to its range, including those used in scrap recycling, waste handling, railroad maintenance and construction. Today, Rotobec products are used by thousands of customers in 46 countries.

Molson will be supplying Rotobec’s extensive range of scrap attachments including the Rotobec Orange Peel Grapple, which is recognized as the industry leader for both innovation and toughness. Their sleek, yet robust, design and standard 360 degree rotation make them a dream to own and operate. Available in 4-Tine, 5-Tine, and Mag-Grab configurations, Rotobec Orange Peel Grapples push the boundary of possibilities to a whole new level. The Poly Grab Grapple is available in 4 or 5-tyne configurations, with both offering an impressive 6.3 tonne lifting capacity. Equipped with Rotobec’s own 300 bar hydraulic cylinders, and manufactured using high-tensile steel, the Poly Grab Grapple is quite simply the toughest around.

For Forestry applications, Rotobec’s portfolio includes Log Grapples, Pulpwood Grapples and Grapple Saws. Available in standard duty, heavy duty and super heavy duty, the Log Grapples set the benchmark for toughness and durability. It’s unique jaw shape, allows wood to easily roll up the inner surface of the grapple, meaning operators can achieve a round bunch every time. The Grapple Saws can be added to both the heavy duty and super heavy-duty Log Grapples. This feature allows you to remove the human element and increase your operation’s efficiency, by performing two tasks at once.

Alongside the Rotobec range of attachments, Molson Group already distributes a comprehensive range
of attachments including, rotating grabs, hydraulic hammers, concrete pulverisers, compactors and many more from NPK, Daemo and Genesis throughout the UK.

Andrew Marsh, Commercial Director at Molson Group, commented: “Rotobec attachments are renowned for their strength and durability. The addition of Rotobec complements the Sennebogen Scrap and Port handlers now available from Molson Green.

“This latest addition is part of our clear strategy to offer a product portfolio from carefully selected Tier 1 suppliers, offering our customers great quality products, backed up by the highest level of after sales service Molson have become synonymous for. Furthermore, this solidifies our position as a single source supply option to the scrap, recycling and ports sectors”.

Ufuk Kozoglu, European Sales for Rotobec Europe commented: “Molson has generated impressive growth across the UK in many sectors and this, along with the outstanding levels of customer service that they deliver, made it a natural choice to appoint them as a distributor for Rotobec. We see the UK as a key market and look forward to working with such a progressive and proven dealer moving forward.”
