Rogers Corporation is an American specialty materials company with headquarters located in Rogers, Connecticut. In 1832, Peter Rogers founded the company, which started out as a materials manufacturer for the textile industry. Rogers is known as one of the oldest public companies in America, and has a great standing of innovation and collaborative problem solving with its customers. Originally a paperboard manufacturing company, Rogers has formed into a major global materials technology leader, creating a variety of high-technology devices and systems. Rogers, as of 2013, has 2,400 full-time employees both in the U.S. and around the world in Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, China, Germany and Belgium. Since its inception, Rogers has been known for sticking to a set of Values that guide the company’s actions. These values help guide the company with “decisions and behaviors within the company and defines their relationships with employees, customers, and the communities in which they operate around the world.“ Rogers Corporation has seven divisions, including the Advanced Circuit Materials division, which offers high-frequency printed circuit board laminates and flexible circuit laminates; the High Performance Foams division; and the Durel division, which offers electroluminescent lighting and drivers. Rogers uses C.A.G. as a foundation for the company’s culture of innovation. These three ideas is how Rogers works together to develop new, innovative material technologies that power, protect, and connect our world. Rogers continues to focus its research, development, and engineering investments on megatrends, a large, long-lasting, global shift in thinking or an approach that affects countries, industries and organizations, which drives global demand for a cleaner, safer, and more connected world. The company was listed on the New York Stock Exchange in April, 2000. In 2013, Rogers is the technology leader in their chosen markets of research. Their goal is to “imagine what could be possible, then apply it to their creativity, research and development expertise to create new products and services for their customers.” Wikipedia.
