By Steve Ducker21 December 2021

Rotar International, a manufacturer of premium hydraulic attachments for excavators in the demolition, recycling and scrap metal industry, has become a member of the Open-S Alliance.

Open-S, the open standard for fully automatic quick couplers for excavators, has been developed to give machine operators and contractors around the world the freedom to combine machine couplers, tiltrotators and work tools from manufacturers in compliance with it, and to promote continued technological development.

Netherlands-based Rotar has a range of hydraulic excavators for the demolition and recycling industry. In recent years it has become a full service supplier for the demolition and recycling market, and the Open-S Alliance as a Supporting Member.

“We are delighted to be a member of the Open-S Alliance,” said Rotar’s commercial director Louis Broekhuizen.

“We supported the Open-S philosophy from day one. Today, a lot of our equipment is factory fitted with OEM integrated fully automatic quick coupler adapters.”

Open-S Alliance chairman Stefan Stockhaus added: “We are very happy that yet another quality manufacturer of excavator work tools has joined the alliance. As more excavator brands can mount Open-S compliant products from factories this will make it even easier in the future.”
