Okada America, Inc., Clackamas, Oregon, and Rotar International BV, based in the Netherlands, have announced a joint alliance of their demolition attachment businesses in the North American marketplace effective Jan. 1.

The joint alliance was created to offer customers more options in demolition, recycling and scrap yard attachments, Okada says in a press release. The statement adds that the joint alliance will strengthen the Okada and Rotar distributor networks in their ability to service existing and future customers.

Okada will provide sales, service, parts and warranty support for the Rotar products along with continuing to support the existing population of Okada products in the field.

“We are very pleased to team up with Rotar International BV and to be adding Rotar products to complement our existing line of attachments,” says Okada President Jim Brown. “Rotar’s demolition, recycling, scrap handling and mobile shear products are field-proven for performance and reliability, and they are backed by Rotar’s years of quality manufacturing experience.”

“We are very excited to be joining forces with Okada, which has been a leader in the attachment industry for more than two decades,” says Louis Broekhuizen, the commercial director of export for Rotar International BV. “Okada has a great reputation and we are proud to be involved in this joint alliance.”      

Through more than 200 U.S. and Canadian distributors, Okada currently offers a complete line of excavator, loader/backhoe, skid-steer, track, compact utility loader and mini-excavator mounted attachments, including breakers (TOP Series and ORV Series), crushers, demolition shears, pulverizers, processors, grapples, compactors (OAC Series) and screening buckets, along with a Pedestal Rock Breaker Boom System line.

Rotar International BV is a manufacturer of products in the demolition, recycling and scrap markets, as well as a supplier of hydraulic attachments for those industries.
