Committed to the Customer

Since our team members are invested in the Rotochopper brand, they have an ownership stake in the future of the recycling industry and the long-term success of each customer. We focus on customer success as the only benchmark for our own success. Dedication to customer success drives everything we do, from factory-direct sales expertise, to factory-direct support.

Committed to Our Foundations

As an employee-owned company, we are committed to the founding principles and core values that make us the leaders in innovation and customer support in the grinding industry. We are committed to remaining right where we started—as a factory-direct manufacturer headquartered in St. Martin, Minnesota, USA. We began with five fabricators in a small machine shop. We continue to grow and create new opportunities for customers around the world but remain centered right where we began.

Committed to Our Vision & Philosophy

We started with the simple goal of creating new opportunities for waste materials. We believed then, as we believe now, that waste materials are liabilities that can become profit centers with the right knowledge, the right equipment, and the right support. Although we continue to grow and serve our customers with new technology, we remain grounded in our original philosophy that waste materials are opportunities waiting for the right solutions.

Committed to Excellence

Employee-ownership means much more than a financial stake in the Rotochopper brand. It means an ownership stake in the technology, quality, and service we deliver. As a factory-direct company, we see first-hand how excellence in manufacturing and customer support drives customer success. Employee ownership means we are committed to exceptional quality and value in everything we do.

Committed to Innovation

From the start, we have focused on turning waste materials into profitable end products as efficiently as possible. Known for our “Perfect In One Pass” simplicity, Rotochopper grinding equipment transforms a wide range of materials into premium products like colored mulch and animal bedding using exclusive technology. As an employee-owned, factory-direct company, we are committed to creating environmentally sensitive, economically sensible solutions for challenging recycling applications.

Committed to You and Your Business

What does employee ownership of the Rotochopper brand mean for your business? It means choosing to advance your business with a company that is uniquely devoted to innovation and holistic solutions for your grinding applications. It means that you are partnering with a team that measures its success by your success.
