The Koskovich Co. was founded ..., 1 May 2009 [cached]
The Koskovich Co. was founded by inventor Jerry Koskovich in 1973. In 1985, he introduced a fully automated saw for the construction of roof trusses, and later he brought the same innovation to jigging equipment.
The decision came down from Koskovich's corporate parent Berkshire Hathaway to shut down the Rochester operation and fold the Koskovich products into St. Louis-based MiTek Industries.
Koskovich sold his company to MiTek in 2005, and MiTek is owned by Berkshire Hathaway, controlled by investor Warren Buffett.
After five years with Koskovich as an accountant, Bruce Johnston of Stewartville is anticipating his last day on the job next week.
Koskovich helped spur T.E.C.'s growth the past 30 years, said Bob Perry, one of the T.E.C. owners.

The Koskovich Company, founded by engineer Jerry Koskovich in the early 1980s, introduced the first automated component saw to the truss industry, the Auto-Omni.Koskovich's computer-orchestrated Omni "wood processing system" boasted then unheard of accuracy and production rates, but took some time to gain wide acceptance.There are now over 300 Auto-Omnis in service and a host of automated competitors spawned by the product, including MiTek's Cyber Saw series.
Koskovich later developed Jet Set, an automated jigging system for press tables which, like the Auto-Omni, takes truss specifications directly from the computer.It then automatically positions pucks to profile trusses for assembly and pressing.
Most recently, The Koskovich Company introduced its Miser series of automated linear-fed saws, the Omni Miser and Omni Mini-Miser, for roof truss and wall panel manufacture.Both saws are available with the industry's first automated material feed system which selects and feeds the appropriate lumber stock to be cut and ink-jet marked.
Jerry Koskovich echoed Toombs' sentiments on the acquisition and underscored the potential fruits of the combined effort.
"I can't picture myself saying this 20 years ago, but, in a way, that gives these words all the more weight.I couldn't be more excited or more enthused than I am in joining forces with the MiTek team.It is exactly the right thing to do at exactly the right time . . . for my customers . . . for both companies . . . and for, at the risk of sounding a little pompous, the whole of the industry."
"The kind of abilities that MiTek brings to the table are precisely what we're short of, including resouces for some major new products and major enhancements we have in the early planning phase," Koskovich said.
Koskovich made it clear that the acquisition would be "pretty much transparent when it comes to relationships with our sale representatives, customers, and vendors.Our focus will now be more concentrated on servicing our customers and developing new equipment."
"And, of course," Koskovich added, "Neither company will be spending any energy competing against one another from now on!"
