ALBION, Pa. – This year marks Rogers Brothers Corporation’s 110 years in continuous operation with more than 100 years of that time devoted to building durable, high-performance lowbed trailers.
Only one in 10,000 businesses manages to last 100 years. Even more remarkable is the fact that Rogers is still owned by the founding family. Each new generation brings improvements and innovations to the design and manufacture of ROGERS trailers. Jay Kulyk, Nick Kulyk and Beth Hough, fourth generation of the Rogers family, are leading the company into their next century as president, vice president and secretary respectively. Larry and Mark Kulyk, grandsons of founder Louis Rogers, attribute the company’s longevity to family pride. “Each trailer that leaves the factory has our family name on it,” says Mark. “We want quality and durability to be associated with that name.” Larry continues in his position as treasurer of Rogers Brothers Corp. and, although Mark has retired as president, he continues to serve as a consultant.
