The Tip Top Family
You'll be hard-pressed to find a company with a staff as dedicated as our Tip Top family.
Tip Top is led by fourth-generation family members, and most of our employees have been with us for years—some for decades. We pack those years of experience into all of our tomato products—along with the best-tasting tomatoes around.
Meet our Tip Top family:
Scott Timmer, President/Plant Manager
Scott has been part of Tip Top since he was a teenager, back when he spent his summers helping our farmers plant and harvest tomatoes. Today, Scott is our president and plant manager, responsible for designing and building much of the equipment we use to can tomatoes. Scott’s job is to maximize quality and efficiency on our product line, making sure that we bring you the best quality tomatoes at the best price. Scott ensures all equipment is well maintained and fully operational at all times in our plant, as well as in our warehouse facility. He is able to identify areas of strength and weakness and implement changes in operations and systems that optimize productivity and the bottom line. Scott is always thinking of ways to improve our efficiencies in order to maximize production.
Matt Timmer, Vice President/Production Manager
Matt is Tip Top’s vice president and production manager. Matt oversees our production cycle from field to factory, making sure that every ounce of flavor from our locally-grown tomatoes is captured in the canning process.

He is responsible for overseeing our HAACP and SQF initiatives ensuring we meet the standards set forth in those programs.
