Celebrating 90 Years!
Celebrating 90 Years!

Rottler is celebrating 90 years of Cutting Edge Equipment.  Since 1923 we've seen a lot of change in the industry and are our strongest years yet.

In 1923 Clarence T. Rottler started the Rottler Boring Bar Company to manufacture machine tool equipment for the automotive aftermarket. The first machine sale resulted from construction of a portable-type machine during off hours, then hand-carrying that machine on a street car to an "automobile row" automotive repair shop to demonstrate and sell it.

In 1956 Don Rottler, already active in the company, assumed leadership. Rottler's original marketplace changed, shops were fewer but larger and started to perform complete automotive engine remanufacturing more economically. Don Rottler saw opportunity in this market shift and steered the company towards producing equipment that was larger, more productive and easier to operate.

In 1985 the company's products changed from strictly mechanical controls to electro-mechanical systems that were soon coupled to micro-processors providing automated work cycles. This transition was essentially completed throughout the product line by 1997.

In 1997, Don's son, Andy Rottler, took the helm. The new millennium has brought continued change to the market place. Rottler adjusted by designing new machines for the performance engine building and industrial engine remanufacturing industries. Pioneering mechanical and machine control design has been key to Rottler's success in leading the engine building market. In 2011 Rottler added an additional 20,000 square feet to the plant to keep up with market demand.
