Company History

At Rotation Engineering, we have been satisfying your most critical metal stamping requirements since 1973.

Our Beginnings

Rotation Engineering was founded by James A. Lorence in 1973 as a tool and die company in Minnesota. In response to demand for single-source responsibility, Rotation Engineering added metal stamping operations in 1975.

Continued Growth

Business expanded rapidly and soon Rotation Engineering added manufacturing capabilities, including Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) and laser equipment, press brakes and shears, welding, and machining centers. The company manufactured a wide range of parts, from filet knives to blood pumps and even some parts used in the country’s defensive operations. By the early 1990s, the company’s facility had grown from its initial 2,500 square feet to 20,000 square feet.

Expansion to Brooklyn Park Facility

In 1995, Rotation Engineering moved into a new, custom-designed 38,000 square-foot building in Brooklyn Park, its current location. Responding to increased business, Rotation Engineering also expanded the services offered to customers. This further differentiated the company and provided customers with lower costs and faster response times. These services, in conjunction with extensive manufacturing capabilities, have become the foundation of Rotation Engineering’s customer appeal.

The Next Chapter

In 2010, Craig Komschlies purchased Rotation Engineering. Komschlies has over 20 years of experience in the metal stamping business. Today, located in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, Rotation Engineering is a progressive engineering, metal stamping and manufacturing company that has earned the respect and loyalty of its customers.
