engcon turns 25 – celebrates with its Silver Edition

In just 25 years engcon has gone from being a one-man band to the world's leading tiltrotator company. We will celebrate this in many events during the year, and our best-selling EC219 has been produced in a limited edition finished in sliver.

"I'm immensely proud of the innovative, international group we've put together over these 25 years. Even though we're passing a historic milestone, we've only just begun our journey,” says engcon founder and principal owner Stig Engström.

“We'll be celebrating our 25th anniversary with a number of events and new offers. Usually, all of engcon's products are painted bright yellow, but we'll be making an exception for a limited series – the Silver Edition – of the popular EC 219 tiltrotator.”

"We enjoy challenging the industry with our products, and silver tiltrotators will make our customers' excavators stand out all the more," says Stig Engström.

Back in 1990, Stig Engström left Noreco – the company where he first came across a quick hitch that could rotate and tilt. He moved back home to Lidsjöberg, founded engcon and began to develop and improve the tiltrotator at home in his garage. Development was small-scale during the early years, and the first product, an EC20, was sold in 1993 and delivered to the customer the following year.

Stig Engström was convinced of the tiltrotator's international potential right from the very beginning, and in 1998 the product was presented at the Bauma international trade fair in Germany.

Today, engcon is a world leading technology group with three brands of construction machine accessories for excavators, tractors, wheel loaders, road graders and trucks. engcon has its own sales companies around Europe, and distributors and dealers throughout the world. Stig Engström has received a number of honors for his excellent, exemplary entrepreneurship, and in 2009 he was nominated Marathon Gazelle by the business daily Dagens Industri. engcon currently has annual sales of around SEK 600 million and 165 employees.

EC219 Silver Edition is now available in a numbered jubilee edition. It is sold together with the smart DC2 control system and the special offer also includes a smartphone and a tool voucher worth SEK 5000.
