Company History

Humble Beginnings. Powerful future.

Ryker is a family-owned and operated company built from the ground up. With unwavering values as its foundation and empowering more businesses, individuals and communities as its future.

After working as a tradesman for several years, Benjamin Wilson founded C.A. Advanced, an asphalt sealing and traffic marking company, in June 2007. Based on the strength and learnings of C.A. Advanced, in 2012 Ben partnered with Reuben Eicher on founding ARC American Inc, a union utility construction contractor with a nationwide presence. Headquartered in the modest town of Wakarusa, Indiana, ARC American Inc. became a flagship storm and distribution company and grew rapidly based on strong core values, an active safety culture, a nimble and skilled workforce, while delivering safe, reliable and quality service for every type of utility construction.

In 2022 the companies reorganized under Ryker Holdings LLC, a double breasted organization offering a range of utility construction subsidiary services for both union and non-union entities.

Now, as the full Ryker family, we’re writing the next chapter in our collective history—defining the future of the next-generation utility infrastructure, together.
