Tigercat Buys New Hampshire Based ROI, Adding Products Like Carbon Negative Tech to Lineup
Expanding Tigercat’s material processing potential in the marketplace
Onatrio, Canada’s Tigercat Industries Inc. has successfully purchased Ragnar Original Innovations (ROI), which is based out of New Hampshire, USA. ROI, which was founded by Anders Ragnarsson, manufactures material processing machinery used in the forestry, recycling, and construction industries. Effective as of September 30th, 2019, the new acquisition will assist Tigercat in gaining a foothold in the material processing sector.
Tigercat is pleased to welcome Anders and his talented staff to the Tigercat team. They bring decades of experience and expertise in the design and manufacture of material processing machinery, broadening Tigercat’s range of capabilities within the marketplace. Anders has assumed the role of VP Material Processing Products. He and his team will continue to operate from their Chester, New Hampshire location until a new facility in Freemont, New Hampshire – currently under construction – is completed.
The initial and immediate addition to the Tigercat line-up will be the Carbonizer product line. Already a commercially available product, this innovative carbon negative technology can convert processed and unprocessed wood debris into a product called Biochar. Still relatively new to the marketplace, this technology has attracted widespread interest from both the private and public sectors seeking practical methods to reduce atmospheric carbon emissions. The Carbonizer’s single step process sequesters carbon and significantly reduces debris volume while creating a product useful in agriculture.
All ROI products retailed to date will be fully supported by Tigercat throughout their lifespans.
