TAUC Regular Member Somerset Steel is celebrating its 60th anniversary.
“In 1957, Sidney W. Riggs, co-founder of Somerset Steel Erection Company, secured a $500 loan, and with the help of his partner, Warren Mostoller, they started Somerset Steel Erection,” the company said in a statement. “The company, which is celebrating their 60th year in business, is a full service industrial and commercial contractor, specializing in general construction, concrete work, process piping, and steel erection and fabrication. The company employs a full staff of AFL-CIO building trades craftsmen, engineers, and administrative staff and has close to 40 million dollars in annual sales. In addition to its current location in Boswell, the company has satellite offices in Maryland and Virginia.”
C. Daniel Riggs, president of Somerset Steel, added, “Although my father is not here to celebrate this milestone with us, I know he would be proud of his employees who have contributed to our success and thankful to our customers and partners for their continued support of our business. My Dad, who began this business out of the trunk of his car, was a determined and hardworking individual and our 60th year anniversary is a tribute to his commitment and dedication in everything he set out to do.”
The company also recently launched a new, completely updated website (www.somersetsteel.com).
Congratulations to Somerset Steel on reaching this milestone!
