Join the Michels Team

Building the way to a better life

Michels was founded in 1959 by a visionary welder in rural Wisconsin who saw a connection between improved energy infrastructure and quality of life. Safe, reliable gas distribution meant warmer homes, hot water and the availability of modern necessities. Initially recruiting his family and friends, Dale Michels added individuals with diverse, innovative ideas and shared values. The company flourished. Three generations later, the Michels Family has built a culture where the strength of our team is the result of each unique contributor.

The Michels team builds projects throughout the world, using technology and teamwork to stay connected to one another and our customers. We believe open communication and the free exchange of ideas bring great results. We are united in delivering projects to improve the global infrastructure and meet future needs.

Our People Build That

At Michels, we pride ourselves on the ability to tackle a large variety of different projects across industries. Our people are no different.  We combine the collective strengths of our hard-working people, our enviable equipment fleet and our substantial experience into one team that can construct and manage your project from planning to completion. This unified approach allows the Michels Family of Companies to provide innovative solutions, consistent quality and the convenience of having one key point of contact for all facets of a complex project.
