Our History

Wicks Construction has been a family-owned, family-run business for more than five decades. Since our founding as a two-man operation in 1960, the Wicks team has strived to deliver top-quality concrete construction at a fair and reasonable price.

Wicks was founded by childhood friends Allan Wicks and Bob Carolan, who started the concrete business to meet the needs of a growing Winneshiek County. The two men worked together for 16 years before Carolan sold his portion of the company and the name changed to Wicks Construction, Inc.

Following a tragedy that took the lives of Allan Wicks and his wife Janenne in 1985, Allan's son Brad took over the business at the age of 23. Brad and his wife Darcy, along with a number of long-time employees, have since grown the business into what it is today.
