Molson grapples with Rotobec dealership

MOLSON Group has extended its product portfolio after being appointed a UK distributor by grapple and attachment specialist Rotobec.

Rotobec manufactures attachments for scrap recycling, waste handling, construction and bulk material handling applications.

The move follows the expansion of the Sennebogen range available from Molson to include scrap and port handlers. Molson said the addition of Rotobec continues to solidify its ‘single source supply’ offering to the scrap, recycling and port industries.

The attachments Molson will be supplying include the Rotobec Orange Peel grapple, featuring a ‘sleek, yet robust’ design and standard 360 degree rotation. The attachments are available in 4-Tine, 5-Tine, and Mag-Grab configurations. The Poly Grab grapple is available in 4 or 5-tyne configurations, with both offering a 6.3-tonne lifting capacity. The Poly Grab grapple is equipped with Robotec’s own 300 bar hydraulic cylinders, and manufactured using high-tensile steel.

For Forestry applications, Rotobec’s offering includes log grapples, pulpwood grapples and grapple saws. Available in standard duty, heavy duty and super heavy duty, the log grapples feature a jaw shape, and is said to allow 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.

Andrew Marsh, commercial director at Molson Group said, “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 added, “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.”
