NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa, December 17, 2018 – Trent Wilson has joined McClure, a Midwest-based Engineering, Surveying, and Planning firm as Staff Engineer for the Water Group, based out of the North Liberty, Iowa office.

“I began my time at McClure as an intern for the Water Group, and I’m now looking forward to joining a team with strong ethics and moral values, as well as camaraderie and professionalism, full-time,” said Wilson of his entry into a new position at McClure.

Wilson, a Journeyman Millwright, began his role as an intern last January and will be working on wastewater design and design reports as he takes on his full-time position in North Liberty. Wilson has 10 years of experience in industrial construction and has worked in coal mines, aluminum smelters, and power plants among others, aligning shafts and drives, conveyors, fans, and other mechanical equipment.
