The Commissioners saw production in process and new equipment in the facility. The Commissioners Road Tour at Rotochopper showcased Rotochopper’s commitment to central Minnesota and the health and well-being of those that work at Rotochopper.
“Our yearly Highway Department Road Tour with the County Commissioners provides great value, such as the opportunity to connect with business leaders and local businesses in Stearns County. Our tour of Rotochopper provided just that. We were able to see firsthand the work and dedication that Rotochopper provides to St. Martin, MN in equipment they build that is delivered all over the world. Great things are happening in Stearns County and we are thankful for the opportunity to showcase this for the commissioners.” said Matthew Zinniel, Stearns County Public Works, Maintenance Supervisor.
