Our Company

Innovation at work

Rotobec is a privately owned business established in Sainte-Justine, Quebec in 1975. The name Rotobec signifies “rotators” of Quebec. The introduction of the rotating hydraulic system was an important innovation in the forestry industry. This technological leap was revolutionary in improving the efficiency of end user operations. Throughout the years, Rotobec has added several products to our line, which are commonly used in scrap recycling, waste handling, railroad maintenance and construction and bulk material handling. Today, Rotobec products are used by thousands of customers in over 40 countries around the world. We are proud to design and manufacture almost every component of our products at our production facilities in Quebec and New Hampshire. We use the most advanced technologies throughout the design and production process and believe that the result is the toughest handling equipment available.


“Rotobec designs, manufactures and markets material handling equipment, using hydraulic rotation system technology, which enables users to optimize their operations. Rotobec highly encourages employee involvement and considers that the company is a reflection of its employees’ performance.”


Through our extensive network of distributors and agents, Rotobec has experienced incredible growth and has become one of the world’s leading manufacturers of grapples and material handlers.
