E.S. Wagner Is Celebrating 75 Years in the Construction Business

E.S. Wagner Company is proud to be celebrating 75 years in the construction business in 2022. Originating as a partnership between Lewis F. Wagner and Lewis E. Wagner, the father/son duo started with one single axle dump truck and a commitment to never compromise on what is right. That foundation in 1947 started a business that would grow steadily under the eventual leadership of Lewis “John” Wagner, and today E.S. Wagner employs over 600 people, creating a footprint of business that stretches from Michigan to Alabama with offices in Ohio, South Carolina, and North Carolina.

John C. Wagner, the 4th generation of Wagner family leadership in the business, said, “Part of the pride we feel in celebrating 75 years as a company is that we still do business today the way my grandfather and great-grandfather intended. Honesty and integrity still work, and I am confident this will be true in another 75 years.”

Our services fall under the umbrella of heavy civil construction. Performing heavy highway construction, industrial site development, underground utility work, structural concrete, and value engineering services with our talented and diverse team makes our work exciting. The key to our success is our people – we have a family-owned atmosphere that stands on the principles of honesty, integrity, and urgency. Applying these principles, we strive to achieve excellence in our work and prioritize quality over profitability.

Over the years, E.S. Wagner customers have recognized the advantages of working with a company that has a strong heritage, reputation, and commitment. “It was a pleasure to work with a company that was extremely knowledgeable, had the resources required to do the work, and refused to fail like E.S. Wagner," said past client David Hunley, Vice President, Connico Incorporated.

The strength of our team is our experience. Most of E.S. Wagner’s leadership has come from the field. This means that when we construct a project, we are approaching it with a practical and fundamentally sound view of how to make it successful. We know what it takes to overcome challenges on the pathway to success.
