Tom Daggett, President

Tom DaggettHutchinson Manufacturing started the year I was born so you might say I was born into the business. By age 12, dad was finding things for me to do around the plant to keep busy. At the age of 16, I gained first-hand experience running many of the processes in the plant from shearing, saw, press brake and weld. Following high school, a degree from the University of Minnesota and a short stint in other employment, I came back to work in the family business.

Hutchinson has been a good home and in return I have been involved with the community serving as Chairman of the Hutchinson Area Health Care Board, Chairman of the ISD #425 Hutchinson School District, plus serving on numerous task forces for local and regional development.
In 2010 HMI and Westinghouse Electric joined forces to create NuCrane which manufactures the operating cranes for the Westinghouse AP 1000 Nuclear reactor.

In addition to Hutchinson Manufacturing and NuCrane, our family holds interest in real estate, plastic compression molding, agri-business after-market sales, and wind energy.

A distinct honor was to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from Minnesota Business Magazine in 2018

Outside interests include reading, X-Country and downhill and skiing, biking and fishing.
