Broyt was a trademark of the company brothers Søyland A / S, later Brøyt A / S, which was founded as "Bryne Iron and Timber Industry " in 1949 by the brothers Kristian and Ingebret Søyland.

 

The company produced various tools associated with agriculture in factory premises in Bryne, Jæren. It was known to have constructed Europe's first excavator with complete hydraulic transmission. Digging machines were often just called Brøyt.
