Please join APEX Engineering as we send congratulations to Rick Anderson for a well-deserved retirement. Rick co-founded APEX Engineering with Dan Peterson in 1993. The firm now employs thirteen people and provides services for more than 130 Wisconsin projects annually. Rick is a graduate of the Chippewa Valley Technical Institute and began his career with Walt Hestekin Associates in 1980.  He obtained professional registration as a Designer of Engineering Systems in 1987, and Professional Engineer in 1991.

During the past 42 years, you might have seen Rick working on jobs all over the state. Early in his career, he designed plans for Cray Research, Ashley Furniture, the Eau Claire School District, Pope and Talbot, NSP, and Phillips Plastic. Since APEX was incorporated, he has continued to work with many local businesses. His projects have included several UW-Eau Claire and UW-Stout buildings, both Eau Claire and Chippewa County courthouses, Banbury Place, Nestle, Seminars for Wisconsin Focus on Energy, and two award-winning designs for Bush Brothers in Augusta and the Mabel Tainter Memorial Theater in Menomonie.

APEX Engineering will miss seeing him on a regular basis but will continue to provide services and designs at the standards Rick has helped set for the company-- a business that he can continue to be proud of. 

You have also seen Rick all over the state in the many bands he has been part of in the past fifty years. Rick can now devote more of his time to his family and his music. Live your best life in retirement Rick and don’t forget to stop by and see us.
