GRAPEVINE, Texas - Rotobrush® International LLC has been awarded the Patriotic Employer Award by the National Committee of Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR). The award is given to those employers with policies and practices supportive of their employees’ participation in the National Guard and Reserve.

Robert Yates, a specialist in the Texas Army National Guard, and Rotobrush technical support representative, nominated his company for the award. “They are very understanding about me having to leave for my weekend drills, and more,” he said. “They make sure to support the troops, and even those that are with the company that are no longer in the service.” Yates is in Echo Company 2-149th AVN in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and is currently serving his second tour of duty in Iraq with plans to return to Rotobrush thereafter. “We are so proud of Robert and his entire company for what they are doing for our country, and we will welcome him back with open arms when his tour is over,” said Heather Fallgren, VP of customer care and technical support.

In front of the full Rotobrush staff, Leon Tribble, a ESGR ambassador, presented Rotobrush CEO and President Steven Bock with the Department of Defense Certificate of Appreciation and a Patriot lapel pin for the company’s award. “We are honored to receive this award and feel as a company that we have a responsibility to give back and support those who sacrifice so much for our country,” said Bock. David Raucher, a veteran captain in the U.S. Army Signal Corps and CIO of Rotobrush, added “I have to say, as a former military guy I am very proud of Rotobrush for receiving this award.”
