The Heart of RUSH:  Our People
Meet William Chivers, President
"Not many people know that I was an All-State musician in high school and originally wanted to be a band director."

President of RUSH, William Chivers grew up in Brevard County, where he lives currently with his wife of 35 years. He has one daughter and two grandchildren, and enjoys golf, fishing, hunting, and spending time with his family and friends. William can also play the saxophone, a hidden talent that not many people know about. 


"My first few weeks at RUSH told me that I had made a wise decision and that I had joined a company that had a very bright future."


A favorite project of William's since joining RUSH is the Barn Light Manufacturing Facility. Helping to renovate and repurpose an old abandoned building while forging a working relationship with such a unique client was extremely rewarding for him.  


Some of his most memorable moments at RUSH include the day that they became an employee-owned company, and the day that they moved into their new office building. "I have a great sense of pride in both of those moments," says William. "Seventeen years after joining RUSH, we are still going strong, and I am just as excited about our future. I love it here, and I love the people that I get to work with every day."
On March 18, 2014,

RUSH Construction Project Highlight:
The Barn Light Manufacturing Facility was a unique project involving the renovation of an existing 38,000 SF facility and new construction of a 10,000 SF primary manufacturing facility for Barn Light's classic vintage light fixtures.
Renovation work included parking lot restoration, selective demolition, new facade, roof repairs, interior and exterior finishes, extensive mechanical, electrical, and fire protection improvements. The work also included the construction of a Paint Room, Drying Room, and new offices associated with the manufacturing process. 
The building addition was constructed primarily for the purpose of housing Barn Light's high-temperature porcelain oven and associated paint booths. The porcelain coating process used in the manufacturing of these light fixtures is one-of-a-kind in he United States!

"To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity."

- Douglas Adams
