Our Company

Since 1975, we have been working hard to bring you the best. We revolutionized the forestry industry with our innovative and original rotating hydraulic system. This innovation is where we got our name from, as Rotobec means: “rotators” of Quebec. Throughout the years, we have expanded our product line offering to include heavy equipment attachments and knuckleboom loaders for the scrap industry, waste management, the rail industry as well as other industrial sectors.

We are proud to design and manufacture almost every component of our products at our production facilities in Sainte-Justine, Quebec, CA, as well as Littleton and Groveton, New Hampshire, USA. We use the most advanced technologies throughout the design and production process and believe that the result is the best handling equipment available out there. For us,  it’s about giving it our all and always raising the bar higher. 

Throughout the years, Rotobec has proven to deliver unbeatable quality and nothing less. We have worked hard to bring our products to you, wherever you are in the world. Today, Rotobec products are globally trusted and recognized in more than 50 countries, making Rotobec a world leader in the industry.

We are Rotobec.

1975
C o m p a n y F o u n d a t i o n

In 1975, Marcel Cayouette and Justine Leblond founded Rotobec. They started out in a small garage where Marcel used to repair cars. One day, a customer asked for hoses repair on a forestry attachment and Marcel came up with an innovative design of a 360° rotation so that hoses would stop breaking, a first for forestry industry equipment. The rest is history.

1979

In 1979, the little garage became too small. Marcel and Justine decided to expand to a new building in the industrial park, which is where today’s headquarters and main factory are still located.

1985

In 1985, Rotobec sold its first grapple attachment outside of Canada and the United States. The first international sale was in Chile, and was made to our very first international customer, who is still one of our loyal customers today.

1998

In 1998, we inaugurated our first factory in the United States, a big expansion! This factory, located in Littleton, New Hampshire has been expanding ever since and mainly produces our renowned Elite Loaders.

Fast forward to more recently, we expanded our production capacity by adding a third factory. In 2019, we inaugurated our Groveton facility in New Hampshire. This brand new factory produces our one and only Rotobec Orange Peel Grapples, RPAs and waste grapples and is growing steadily.
