Rocket EMS was founded in 2011 by Michael Kottke, who already had a reputation in Silicon Valley of manufacturing excellence. Michael had a vision of rekindling the magic of the 1960’s space race. He wanted to bring together great minds with a shared vision – he wanted to focus not just on innovation, but on consistently delivering innovation. Michael reached out to industry veterans like Dennis Kottke, Craig Arcuri and Scott Schaetzle to form the leadership group of Rocket. All of these players had a shared attitude towards American manufacturing and experience building $100M businesses numerous times over.
