    The HCCA’s “2021 Safe Employee Award” was presented to John Harmon on April 6th, 2021, via Zoom teleconference. This recognition by the HCCA is a very personal award and has only been given to a select few. John joins this elite group of professionals who demonstrate exemplary efforts to promote and realize a safe working environment. SWR’s safety department, led by Chris Butler, recognized John’s commendable performance and submitted his application to the HCCA Safety Committee for review.  Applicants for this award must consistently demonstrate excellent safety practices, suggest improvements of current safety practices and demonstrate safe working practices to others. John’s ability to maneuver a lowboy semi-trailer loaded with heavy equipment through the congestion of Northern Virginia without incident is nothing short of incredible. The applicant pool stretches from over 160 member firms and over 32,000 eligible employees. Congratulations John, your dedication and service did not go unnoticed. Sincere thanks to the HCCA’s Safety Committee for this recognition.

  • Signing Day 2019

    The afternoon of June 13th, 2019 will be one of those days that may echo for years to come.  The first ever “Signing Day” took place at the Lord Fairfax Community College campus in Vint Hill.  The room buzzed with excitement as eight graduating high school students from Fauquier and Prince William County signed letters of intent with four HCCA member firms.  The first of its kind program included a nationally recognized curriculum and heavy equipment simulator training for graduating seniors.  The success of this program had many in the audience beaming with excitement about this future path of education.                

    SW Rodgers is proud to be one of the inaugural companies that participated in hiring this years’ class of students.  Not only are we proud to support the young adults graduating from our local communities, but we are extremely excited about the two individuals that choose SW Rodgers as their career path.  Hunter Key and Bradley Tavener (pictured below) signed letters of intent with us and will begin their careers here in the coming days.

    The success of this class of students is also attributable to their instructor.  Josh Allen has been instructing the Heavy Operators Training Course at LFCC for the past couple years.  Josh is a long-time employee of SWR and future leader of this company.   Hunter and Brad are certainly better equipped to tackle the demands of the jobsite after training with Josh over the past semester.  We look forward to seeing these two students grow on the jobsite and wish them much success on their new career paths.  Welcome to the team!

  • Celebrating Commitment

    11/21/18

    On Saturday November 3rd some amazing accomplishments were celebrated.  It was the night of the 2018 Orange & Black Club dinner celebration at the Brass Cannon Restaurant, located at Stonewall Golf Club.  On this evening three new inductees joined the 35-year club: Tony Paige, Marty Chipps and Cecil Summerfield.  This accomplishment recalls too many valuable contributions and accolades to mention, but it also brings to mind something just as important, “Family.”  In this day and age, it seems rare to truly enjoy being around your co-workers, working together to accomplish a goal and to wake up the next day eagerly challenged to do it again.  These men and women are the reason why some of us come to work daily.  It could be a brotherhood, a feeling of accountability or even of family that drives us to accomplish the shared goal.  Those feelings can be hard to find on the jobsite and when they are found they should be acknowledged and celebrated.  So began the Orange and Black Club.

    Following the individual tributes received and several personal anecdotes from the recipients about their professional lives, the newly inducted achievers were honored and presented a gift from the company.  Dinner was served, and the evening was filled with lively stories, hugs and handshakes reminiscent of a large family Thanksgiving feast.  SW Rodgers Company sends out a heartfelt “Thank You” for the continued commitment to all those that we call family.  May you and your loved ones be blessed this holiday season.
