Ralph Rogers

Ralph Rogers laid the groundwork for what is now one of the largest privately owned aggregate companies in the United States. Rogers and his partners were among the first road builders involved in President Dwight Eisenhower’s Interstate Highway System, supplying stone and building major interstate sections in Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee. He created and maintained a corporate culture where the “man in the pit” was just as important as the executives or elected officials.

Pit & Quarry established an industry Hall of Fame in 2012 to pay tribute to the pioneers of the past and present-day industry leaders. A neutral board comprised of various industry segments reviews all nominations and determines which individuals earn induction to the Hall of Fame.
