PORTLAND, Oregon, USA (August 2, 2023) – Cascade Corporation, the global leader in the manufacturing of attachments, forks and related technologies for forklifts and AGVs as well as a leader in quality mast products, has acquired attachment manufacturer, Loron, as a wholly-owned subsidiary.

“Loron is very pleased to be a part of Cascade,” says Steve Nortness, President of Loron. “We believe this next chapter will bring exciting new opportunities for greater growth and product development along with the ability to better serve and support our customers.”

Established in 1990, Loron is recognized in the industry for their innovative attachments particularly the Soft Touch Clamp, a popular damage-reduction product. In addition to the Soft Touch Clamp, Loron produces a variety of forklift attachments including Carton Clamps, Push/Pulls, Single-Doubles, Fork Positioners and Bin Dumpers.  With a manufacturing facility located in Kelso, Washington about 50 miles north of Portland, Oregon, Loron primarily serves the North American market.

“Loron brings a long-standing history and tradition of quality and innovation to the industry,” says Davide Roncari, President & CEO of Cascade Corporation. “They will continue to operate as a separate, independent company with additional opportunities for investments and market growth under Cascade ownership.”

As Loron and Cascade will continue to operate independently, their products will remain available for order through current and respective sales channels. For more product information, visit
