The RW Team
Steven J. Weirich
President & C.E.O
Steve Weirich began his career in the pre-cast industry in 1982 with Rotondo/Penncast, Inc. During his tenure with Rotondo/Penncast, Steve was one of the first to develop the prototype for the Pre-Cast Modular Cell. This led the company to transition from pre-caster to modular cell contractor. Steve ended his tenure with Rotondo/Penncast as their General Manager and Vice President. Along with Mario Rotondo, he went on to found Rotondo Weirich Enterprises, Inc.
Steve takes an active role with each of RW’s projects, developing lasting relationships with clients and contractors, and fostering daily communication with all Project Management team members. His primary focus is on the oversight of RW’s operations with a strong emphasis on business development, finance and project management.

Mario Rotondo’s pre-cast career began during the mid-1960's at A. Rotondo & Sons, Inc. and went on to lead the team at Rotondo/Penncast Inc.

Moving from President of Rotondo/Penncast to co-founder of Rotondo Weirich Enterprises, Inc., Mario and Steve have evolved the pre-cast modular cell technology to the on-site production systems of today’s RW.
