A History From the Ground Up
Rogers Group is proud of its long and storied legacy
Founded by Ralph Rogers, who first began crushing rock in 1908 on the side of the road in then-rural Bloomington, IN, Rogers Group is proud of its long and storied legacy and its wide-ranging impact on the American infrastructure and economy.
Noteworthy projects over the decades include: Oak Ridge, Tennessee (home of the “Manhattan Project” nuclear research); Fort Campbell, Kentucky (home of the U.S. Army 101st Airborne Division); Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division near Indianapolis, Indiana; Interstate 40 in Tennessee, North Carolina, and Arkansas; and Interstate 24 in Kentucky and Tennessee.
Rogers Group is still owned by descendants of Ralph Rogers, and three of Ralph’s great-grandchildren serve on the company’s Board of Directors today. In 2016, the Board elected Darin Matson as President and Chief Executive Officer of Rogers Group.
