About Wickizer & Associates
During the recession of 2008, after the building industry collapsed, Rick Wickizer cashed his last severance check and launched Wickizer & Associates. Rick knew that hard work and adding value to others would assure success. Picking up any line he could secure, Rick quickly built a profitable firm, with sales reaching nearly $1 million the first year. Today, Wickizer & Associates has grown annual sales to nearly $10 million and is keenly focused on the building envelope, promoting exterior building products and solutions . Chad Wickizer joined the firm a few years later as a Partner and Vice-President and has contributed to the success and growth of the firm.
Wickizer & Associates was founded on a mission to “Serve and add value with knowledge & integrity”. We strive to remain current on building science and the latest in product development. To better serve our stakeholders, we have endeavored to limit product lines we carry, so we can maintain adequate focus and generate proper synergy.
