We would like to introduce a NEW employee to the High Tech Family!
Jason Hoppe joined us at the beginning of the November. Jason comes to us with a 10+ year machine shop experience, as well as 4+ years working in Industrial Distribution with BlackHawk.
Jason Hoppe started with High Tech Industrial Representation to increase and support the sales growth of the manufacturing they work with.
Prior to joining High Tech, Jason worked at BlackHawk Industrial as an Account Manager. While at BlackHawk Jason managed a sales territory in Central, MN. He negotiated contracts and worked on machine processes to increase productivity. He also worked with customers to help manage their level of inventory in their vending solutions and also with BlackHawk’s warehouses. He would also help with new projects to select the proper work holding and tooling selection. He worked on many tooling packages for new machines. He also ran cost saving solutions to justify cost on the projects.
Before working at BlackHawk, Jason worked at a machine shop in Melrose, MN. He started as a machine operator on nights. After a month of working nights they saw his potential and moved him up to days as a set-up machinist. Working in that role for 3 years they gave him the opportunity to become the shop programmer. While working as the shop programmer things progressed quickly and that lead to a supervisor role. He was then in charge of workers on a day and night shift schedule.
Jason is also a Volunteer Firefighter for the Freeport Fire Department. He joined the Fire Department Jan 1 of 2007. He is a certified First Responder and Firefighter. While being on the department he was elected to take on the responsibility of 2nd Assistant Chief and was in that role for 2 years. He has fought many structure fires in and around his community. He has also responded to many medical and car accidents.
Jason lives in the country around the Melrose area with his wife, Heidi, and their children, Thor, Sawyer, and Tucker.
He enjoys spending time with his family, camping, going golfing, hunting and fishing.
Please help me welcome him! Minneapolis and North Minnesota.
