In 1923, Joseph B. Rogers, Jr. opened his business with an engineering degree from Drexel University and a lifetime of technical experience. The customers ranged from homeowners to industrial clients who recognized Josephs abilities and his integrity. The company continued to grow in size and reputation up until his untimely death in 1953. Joes sons, George, David and Joseph, III, along with their mother, Gladys, continued the business as Joe had founded it. After 30 years of predominantly residential work, however, a major change was proposed.
The brothers proposed a shift to the commercial/institutional market,
and the company changed forever. The 1950s and 1960s were
a time of major public infrastructure construction, and Rogers was poised
to be a major player in new school construction. From the early 1960s
through the late 1980s, Rogers completed, on average, one school
construction project every 3 months! This impressive record also includes
a more incredible achievement. Rogers completed this work without having
a single dissatisfied customer.
The key to this accomplishment has been our central theme throughout
the history of the company make sure the work is done right, and
never walk away until the customer is happy. This theme continues to this
day, instilled in the third generation of Rogers management, with
Joseph B. Rogers, IV and Perry Rogers involved in the
transition that occurred in a gradual process from the late 1980s
until Joseph Rogers, III retired in 1999. In that time Rogers has built
its niche in commercial, industrial and institutional markets where exacting
standards of construction are required and quick completion is a must.
Our clients include some of the major names in the pharmaceutical industry
as well as major manufacturing and educational institutions.
Rogers Mechanical stands ready to continue into the 21st century with the same
level of commitment to quality that made Joseph Rogers Jr. a success over
75 years ago. By Gods grace we look forward to the day when our
childrens children will be meeting the challenges of a future market.
