Our History

WRB Enterprises began as a Caterpillar Tractor dealership in 1952. Joseph L. Rozier moved his family from the Midwest to Florida with the expectation for growth and opportunity, based on hard work, trustworthy relationships, and the commitment to always do the right thing. G. Robert Blanchard, Sr., Mr. Rozier‘s son-in-law, assumed responsibility for the company as it evolved to include a variety of enterprises, all maintaining the same core values and beliefs:

What’s good for business is good for people, the community and the environment.
