Swedish quick coupler and tiltrotator specialist Steelwrist has officially opened its North American headquarters in Newington, Connecticut, marking a key milestone in its expansion strategy.

Currently one of the fastest growing tiltrotator supplier in North America, the company held an inauguration ceremony to mark the achievement.

The inauguration event, which took place last week, was attended by United States Senator Richard Blumenthal, executives from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), and numerous customers and equipment dealers.

Steelwrist CEO Stefan Stockhaus, who along with the company’s entire North American team conducted the ribbon-cutting ceremony, said: “This inauguration represents a significant step forward for Steelwrist in North America and with the new facility we can continue our exceptional growth trajectory and even better serve our customers and dealers in the region.

“It was a pleasure to host Senator Richard Blumenthal and explain the efficiency improvement potential that our products can bring to the US construction industry.”

Steelwrist entered the North American market at Conexpo in 2017 and established its first location in Berlin, Connecticut. The new headquarters in Newington, just five minutes from the original site, is more than five times larger – which the company says highlights its rapid growth and underscores its “commitment to the region”.

According to the company, the increased capacity and improved infrastructure offered by its Newington headquarters means it is “well-positioned to continue leading innovation in the tiltrotator market and supporting the needs of its North American dealers and customers”.

Richard Aulin, Steelwrist VP Region Americas, said: “I am very excited to have inaugurated our new headquarter in Newington which marks a new chapter in Steelwrist’s support to the North America market.

“We have an exceptional team in place where every single one goes the extra mile for our customers. Combining this with our new facility, I look forward to continued success.”
