Saber Controls moves into Cokato
By Kristen Miller
With more than 40 customers across the US and still growing, Saber Controls, an electrical engineering firm, has moved into town.
The three owners, Paul Trosen, Scott Swanson and Mike Lawyer, had been renting an office in Long Lake since their beginning four years ago. They decided it was time to buy.
In June, Saber Controls bought office space from Stonelake Title Company on Millard Avenue in Cokato.
The three-man company focuses on automated services for food plants, but “We don’t limit ourselves,” Trosen said.
They can also provide help with at-home computer networking, Lawyer explained.
Locally, Saber Controls has worked with APT (Advanced Process Technologies) for equipment maintenance when they are busy, Lawyer added.
Having worked all over the US and even internationally, they are hoping to “get large enough to bring on more engineers,” Lawyer said.
The name originated from Lawyer’s dog, a German Shepherd named Saber, he said.
Trosen enjoys the camaraderie the three North Dakota State graduates share.
“We are our own bosses,” Lawyer said. “There is no middle man.”
Swanson enjoys seeing a job from start to finish, from beginning to completion, he said.
Their mission statement is, “Focus on and understand our customers’ needs and requirements to engineer and design a system that will exceed their expectations.”
