In 1941 Clifford Wagner set out on a new business venture—trucking in northern Minnesota. Through the following decades, his son Dennis Wagner built upon that success, expanding the operations into forestry in 1974 and growing the size of the company in other construction areas as well. Presently, in our third generation of family ownership, Wagner Construction, Inc. is a known leader in the civil construction and forestry industries. The company has also established several aggregate and rock quarries, and ready‐mix locations throughout Minnesota.

The current company president, Kalan Wagner, has built upon the hard work, experience and relationships that his grandfather and father developed over the years, and is now leading the company through established and new market opportunities. With a strong pride in our past, Wagner Construction, Inc. is poised to deliver projects for a variety of businesses, now and into the future.

The solid foundation of Wagner Construction, Inc. is built from decades of experience and integrity. The teams we have in place are versatile and accountable, ensuring strong client relationships and a well‐ established reputation for excellence.

In the growing construction world, we have learned through years of experience the ability to be resourceful, saving owners’ money, not sacrificing on quality. Working with top firms in the industry, our management and crafts‐people have an average of 15 years of experience in their trades and the pride and responsibility in their work is reflected in our finished projects.

At the core of the company’s success is our people. Putting the right people in place, with the appropriate experience at all levels, and combining them with the heavy equipment and tools required for each and every job, is what has allowed Wagner to thrive through the years. As a growing company, Wagner has focused on developing processes and controls to provide consistency through all projects from project management to construction.
