Remembering David Hoak

We are deeply saddened by the passing of David Hoak in July of 2022. David was Owner and Chairman of the Board of Wheeler, having had a 51-year history with the company. His commitment to and love for his family, friends, community, and Wheeler was apparent to all. David’s leadership and his friendly and engaging personality is very much missed.

Wheeler is honored as a long term supporter of NACE.

At their recent conference, the National Association of County Engineers presented Wheeler with a plaque recognizing 25 years of support for the organization. Wheeler maintains strong ties with the county engineering community through design and supply of bridges and salt storage buildings.

Quick Bridge Replacement Saves County a Headache

When the bridge on CTH O failed Clark County thought they were in for a long winter of complaints regarding the road closure.  Wheeler responded quickly by teaming with Ruzic Construction to provide the design/build solution for a new bridge at the site.

Randy Anderson, the Clark County Highway Commissioner, commented, “When the bridge failed, I thought we were in for a long and inconvenient winter, on CTH O, but you made sure that didn’t happen.”  See Randy’s entire letter.
