Hank (Henry) Klassen has decided to retire and put away his sliderule (and his laptop). While we’re happy for him, we will very much miss his experienced hand here at Quartek.

The last 32 years of Hank’s civil engineering career have been at Quartek (including its past incarnations as F. J. Reinders & Associated Niagara and MPS Reinders).

Hank has taken on every challenge presented and has consistently responded with reliable engineering solutions. For many years, he has provided stable leadership for our civil/municipal engineering team and exemplified quiet integrity.

We trust that you will join with Quartek’s ownership and staff as we wish Hank and his wife Selma all the best as they enjoy family, camping and other pastimes that retirement will afford. While we will greatly miss his many contributions, we expect to see him from time to time, and will periodically call on his experience and expertise.
