The Company

The company was founded by Eng. Sigvard F. Orts in 1972 as an engineering and consulting company, specialised in constructions of grabs (main business) and nearly all kind of bulk handling equipment.

In the beginning there was only construction and sales. The manufacturing took place at well known companies in Northern Germany.

In 1985 an own workshop was founded and since that time it is the ORTS GmbH Maschinenfabrik.

The company is still family-owned.

The range of products:


Main customers are shipping companies, where the grabs has to stand the rough conditions on sea-going vessels, charging and discharging the vessel in every corner of the world. But also harbour and port authorities, stevedoring companies and other companies which have to move or to handle “something”.

ORTS has evolved over the years as a global well known grab-maker and is your reliable partner for loading and unloading.
