About Mishler

The Mishler Story...

Build Strong comes from the ideals of a family rooted in determination with a strong work-ethic and has become the legacy of numerous professionally constructed projects over the last several decades.

When founder and President of Mishler, Del Fast, considered a name to incorporate his business, he soon realized that Fast Construction might be a bit too presumptuous! Del comments, I really didn't want to be known as the company that just built FAST. So, in furthering his search for a name, he found he didn't need to look any further than his own backyard!

In 1918 Del's father was born out of wedlock and given up for adoption. All of his life he carried the surname of his adoptive family and knew nothing more than he was the son of Peter and Jennie Fast. Though his home life was a good one, Del's father eventually came to realize he was not a Fast by birth and began pursuing an interest in understanding his roots. In the summer of 1971, a letter written to his adoptive parents from his birth mother was discovered. That letter had the signature of a woman by the name of Mildred Mishler. Over the next 20 years, Del, his father and his family searched for the truth of their roots. It wasn't until the fall of 1991 when together, they found the lineage of a whole new family!

As Del finalized his thoughts regarding a name to incorporate his new business, it became clear that the name Mishler would not only preserve his new-found heritage, but would also leave a legacy for his family in the years to come. So, in the spring of 1995 Mishler Corporation was born. Thus proving that out of the brokenness of one family can come the strength of another!

From the humble beginnings in the housing industry to the now multi-million dollar commercial development and construction of today, the name Mishler, has become synonymous with a legacy of innovation, built on the strength of quality Professional Construction and Development Services.

Today, it is the strength of the name Mishler that gives our company its heritage. In the future, it will be our legacy in the name Mishler to always Build Strong™!
