About Us

The Whitacre Engineering Company has a long history of providing outstanding customer service and high-quality products and services to the construction industry. We want to help you, your project, and your business succeed.

In 1920, John J. Whitacre established the company to provide hollow clay tile fillers, steel, and other building materials that general contractors and engineers could use for structural floor slabs. Over the years, Whitacre has had offices in Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, and Rochester. The focus has changed from flooring systems to furnishing and placing fabricated reinforcing steel.

Through 96 years of business, Whitacre’s focus has evolved to providing rebar services. Today, we provide a coordinated package of rebar services, serving the Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia markets from its facilities in Canton, Ohio and Syracuse, New York.

What hasn’t changed is our commitment to maintaining the highest standards in customer service. We believe that quality and service are the most important characteristics of a successful business. We pride ourselves on being the preferred source for rebar services and strive to provide complete solutions to construction challenges, for any project.

    Your entire team did a GREAT job for DYK on both the Westcott Reservoir and Manlius Reservoir. Work was completed before schedule and it was a pleasure working with your entire company. When we asked to hurry up and get it done... You did. Your design team was fast & efficient. Fabrication was great at supplying materials even on short notice. Your trucking was great. Installation was fast, efficient and safe. A great job by all! I hope we can work together again on the next project.
