Local Competition

We anticipate an increased need for labor over the next ten years, as Rotochopper is poised for continued year over year growth. Our greatest difficulty is hiring trained welders due to local competition for that type of labor. There is a technical college in the area that offers appropriate programs, we just have other employers recruiting the same students.

Our rural location is one challenge. There are a number of employers competing for skilled laborers in our area. While we pay a premium, it can still be a determining factor.

We work with local high schools to present skilled labor as a viable and lucrative career option for those not pursuing a college degree. We also work with post-secondary schools to bring students in for tours.
