Wheaton Sprague's Stow, OH office announces the hiring of Arthur Hanson as Project Design Technician in the Drafting, Design, and Modeling Department. Art is a highly motivated and results driven mechanical drafter with more than 30 years' experience. Art is adept at identifying and resolving inefficient procedures and processes, and completing demanding projects with critical timelines. He is detailed and process-oriented, and has the ability to analyze things quickly. We welcome Art to WS and look forward to his vast experience implementing innovative solutions for our clients.
Art comes to WS with past industry experience at MK Architectural Metals and United Architectural Metals, as well as additional experience in mechanical design for companies in the fabrication, welding and installation industries. When he's not at work, Art's life revolves around his friends, his four children, seven grandchildren and his church. He's as comfortable in nature as he is behind a computer, and has been seen jumping out of airplanes or parachuting. When it comes to food, Art loves a good steak. He believes biscuits and gravy are good for the soul, but has a strong distaste for tomatoes.
Art enjoys welding and masonry and has done some rather extensive remodeling. Home repairs may seem like work, but music and dogs are his relaxing passion. As for music, Art plays guitar. He's had the same Yamaha acoustic for 36 years, and his electric is a Les Paul, certain to annoy the neighbors when he cranks his amp. He's partial to southern rock and Texas blues, but anything from George Strait or Alabama will get him to pick up his axe. The dogs in his life are two beautiful red and white Huskies - Miranda and her son Milo. Art became fond of Huskies as a child, taken with their intelligence and personality. While raising a family, he found them protective of his children and loyal to their owners. Now that all the kids have left home, he is continually reminded just how loyal they can be. Miranda and Milo are joined by a rescue puggle (pug / beagle), named Elvis! When the grand kids aren't around, Art and the dogs can be found in the garage while he tinkers with his '64 Chevy Impala SS.
Since Art has been with Wheaton Sprague, he says he's observed a dedication on a level that is rarely seen in the building envelope industry. His personal motto of always being willing to lend a helping hand will have him fitting right into the company culture of Wheaton Sprague.
According to Mike Kohler, Stow Branch Leader, “Art’s previous experience in the niche market of custom curtain wall detailing and fabrication drawing expertise reinforces Wheaton Sprague’s commitment to our customers of providing the highest quality and timely turnaround of design, drafting, and engineering services to the industry. Art is a welcome addition to our current team of well-regarded professionals.”
