Arron Glysch never hesitates to offer help to those around him. Even when his plate is overflowing with projects, he’s always willing to lend a hand to someone in need.
Glysch, an estimator at Miron Construction, is also a member of the Wisconsin Army National Guard. In 2018, not long after he was promoted from mason to estimator, Glysch received orders from the military that he would be spending a year in Afghanistan.
He then had only a few weeks to put his affairs in order. Amazingly enough, he never once took his foot off the gas at work. The last thing he wanted to do was leave any of his team members at Miron in the lurch.
Although Glysch was overseas, his colleagues put together care packages for him. When asked what he needed, Glysch called on the public to send packages for his entire team, not just him.
“Arron is the type of person who just does what is right,” said Jason Fuhrmann, senior vice president of estimating at Miron. “He is selfless, he is a friend, he is a brother. He always puts others before himself and I consider myself lucky that he chose to work for Miron and to work with our team.”
During his six years at Miron, Glysch has worked on some notable projects, including the Hammes building in Milwaukee and the Wisconsin Veterans Home at King in Waupaca.
“Another estimator was the lead on (the veterans home), but being able to see the coordination and planning piece for a project of this size was truly amazing,” Glysch said. “Also, having served, it hits a little closer to home knowing we are providing the resources and space that our veterans truly need.”
Glysch said the family atmosphere at Miron sets it apart from other companies.
“I know you hear this a lot from Miron employees, but Miron’s No. 1 priority is the community, it’s clients and it’s employees,” he said.
