“Thor Motor Coach has been working with J.A. Wagner Construction for well over 20 years. Whether it’s a small project or a ten million dollar new facility build, we get the same quality, professionalism, and dedication to perfection we have come to expect. I feel the secret to their success is the simple fact they don’t try to cut corners in any way and have a team of professionals on staff and subcontractors that can’t be beaten. As a facilities director, it makes a world of difference knowing you have a team of professionals working with you on the same goal."
Jeff Bienz
Facilities Director - Thor Motor Coach
“Working with the J.A. Wagner team during this process was an outstanding experience for us. Their professionalism, which we did challenge at times, was nothing but top notch. Andrew Harman, our project manager, spent many nights working on the specifics of this project. They started clearing land in May and we were running equipment on November 15th, less than 7 months later which is nothing but remarkable. We had an amazing superintendent, Rick McCollough, who worked very closely with local contractors to push deadlines and keep the project moving forward. Without his countless hours, I'm not sure we could have started as soon as we did. I would have not wanted any other team on our project. These guys are for real."
Christopher Croker
VP of Operations - Welch Packaging
"Once construction began, J.A. Wagner kept me fully engaged and informed. I was able to put the project in J.A. Wagner’s hands and concentrate on managing Vista. Having the peace of mind to know that the project was well managed, both structurally and financially, by J.A. Wagner was such a blessing to Vista. Working with J.A. Wagner was the best decision that I could have made and your guidance was critical to the success of this project."
Tod Tieszen
President - Vista Manufacturing
“J.A. Wagner did a fantastic job managing the transition into our new office. They ensured our project remained on track and on time, and the frequency of communication and the responsiveness aided in making the transition process as seamless as possible. Most importantly, J.A. Wagner was able to translate our vision to the final project. Our offices today truly reflect who we are as a company and what we stand for regarding the product we sell. Our team as well as our company’s leadership is extremely pleased with the final result and would highly recommend J.A. Wagner for future services.”
David Buckner
Controller - Hydro Extrusions
“Since 1983, we have relied on J.A. Wagner for all our construction needs and they have exceeded our wildest expectations. Every project has been done on time and within budget! This year marked the 2nd generation of both of our families working together and it was a pleasure to see that J.A. Wagner still holds true to all the same core values that we hold dearly after 35 years. Truth, Honesty, Integrity, Quality, Value, and Service are more than just words to everyone at J.A. Wagner. It is how they do business."
Troy Stone
President - Vintage Trailers, Ltd.
“J.A. Wagner has been and will continue to be, a strategic partner with Tredit Tire and Wheel Company. Our projects have been handled with great professionalism from concept to completion. Communication with J.A Wagner is always fast and reliable. From project management to project superintendent, to subcontractors, we always knew what was happening, and they always met expectations.
