Rotochopper, Inc. is honoured to be recognized as the Central Minnesota Manufacturers Association (CMMA) 2019 Manufacturer of the Year. This award recognizes and appreciates member excellence and the extraordinary investments, services and contributions offered to their thriving group.

On Wednesday, July 29, 2020, CMMA board president, Les Engel, and CMMA board secretary, Tim Zipoy, traveled to St. Martin, Minn., to present Rotochopper with this esteemed award.

In a message to the CMMA board of directors Zipoy said, “Rotochopper, Inc. has professionally delivered positive and meaningful impact upon CMMA in many ways. […] They wisely join the assembly to further advance the truth that today, growth and innovation can rarely be maximized by one company, one service organization or even one industry going it alone. […]

Rotochopper has provided guidance and servant leadership to CMMA through serving multiple terms on our board of directors. From their mission critical vantage point as a manufacturer, this company’s insight and direction strengthens CMMA’s capacity to meet objectives and accomplish strategic organizational goals. […]


Rotochopper has worked upstream to engage young people and to invigorate and inspire them to consider careers in manufacturing by partnering with schools, students and parents to create new vision, new pathways and a new workforce.”

Rotochopper CEO Tosh Brinkerhoff said, “We are honored to be presented with this prestigious award. CMMA continues to contribute to the growth and success of the Central Minnesota manufacturing community. We are grateful for the work CMMA has done for manufacturers and are proud to work as a partner to enhance those efforts.”
