Our story and culture

Our story

One night in 2009, two men were talking around a campfire. Those two men were Nate Sargent, who was experienced in rooftop accessories, and Kynan Wynne, who was experienced in fall protection. Both of them had found success working on and around rooftops for many years, but they had noticed the same thing - most rooftops lacked adequate fall protection, with many not having any fall protection solutions at all. They agreed that there was a dire need in the market for greater education and accessibility when it came to fall protection requirements and products. That year Rooftop Anchor (RTA) was born with the objective of becoming the best solution to fall protection needs.

The company started small in Salt Lake City, Utah, where it saw rapid growth and after a couple of years relocated to the beautiful mountain valley of Heber City, Utah, where it shared a brand new 33,000 square foot facility with its sister company MIRO Industries. RTA continued to grow at a rapid pace until in 2017 they purchased and relocated to a nearby 22,000 square foot facility, where they are currently located.

Today, RTA is everything its two founders wanted it to be. A single-source fall protection solutions provider, leading the country in OSHA-compliant systems. RTA provides products for any and all rooftop safety needs, as well as a variety of services to ensure that America's workers at height always have the protection they deserve. Rooftop Anchor is proud to do it all - design, engineering, manufacturing, installation, testing, and more.

Our culture

Since RTA opened its doors, people have frequently commented about our culture and work environment, and how it is different than anyplace they had seen before. Being a part of RTA has always felt like family. As the company has grown, so has this intangible quality. People at RTA care for one another and they recognize that working here is about more than just putting in the time and going home. What we do at work is part of a greater purpose, and it shows.

On the surface Rooftop Anchor is just a name for a business. But at its core Rooftop Anchor truly is something much more important - special people. People with unique interests, talents, backgrounds and aspirations. People who care deeply for one another. These people have come together to form a remarkable team, and this team of special people is what makes RTA so unique.

We like the TEAM acronym.

Together
Everyone
Achieves
More

This mentality allows us to understand that our efforts working as a team are much more impactful and effective. As it is often said, "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts."

We make an active effort to encourage the growth of our unique and special company culture. This includes ensuring that new employees will be a great fit for the RTA team and understand the importance of working together for something significant.
