Marcus Ferenc, Project Manager, Helix Electric
Helix Electric would like to give a special thanks to the team over at Knobelsdorff for the quick turnaround on a last-minute job site scope change adding an EPO switch to the Children’s National Hospital HPC room in Washington, DC. The entire process from the submittals to fast shipping of the product was very easy. Helix will be doing business in the future with Knobelsdorff.
Lee Gossen, Gypsoil
A special thank you to Knobelsdorff for the great service, we are all very pleased the team was able to be here on such short emergency notice. We are certainly looking forward to working with you all at Knobelsdorff again in the future. Like the slogan says, hard to say, easy to love.
Matt Schaefer, General Manager, Grassland Solutions
If you asked anyone on our installation team which GC they would prefer to work for it would be KE. The job site atmosphere is great and companies can work together to get each of their tasks done in a timely and efficient manner. A lot of planning and execution goes into making a commercial project successful, if every company only cares about themselves the whole project suffers. It's important to create a win, win environment. We look forward to continuing to work and grow with KEI and appreciate the hard work we have done so far together!
Drew Teigland, Project Manager, Bay State Milling Company
It’s easy to love the KE team. I’m impressed by the professionalism of planning, layouts, drawings, and at the same time, the respect I get from the entire team. The KE crew talks in a language I can follow and works with me on my level, always responding and accommodating to odd requests and questions. Their knowledge of the milling industry is evident in the efficient way they work. I highly recommend KE for electric and engineering needs.
Jeff Schneider, Deputy Director, Solid Waste Division, City of Red Wing, MN
The City of Red Wing utilized Knobelsdorff for the City’s Material Recovery Facility project in 2019. Knobelsdorff designed and built all system control panels, provided all control system programming, Human Machine Interface (HMI) design and displays and provided all the electrical equipment and conduit installation for the entire project. Knobelsdorff’s team was dependable, knowledgeable and professional with excellent customer service throughout the project.
Bill Papke, Vice President, Tri-State Business Machines
Thanks to Knobelsdorff our Rochester, MN facility had a dramatic change in its night-time appearance and we think it’s terrific! From requesting information regarding new lighting, to receiving a quote, to the work being completed, our experience with Knobelsdorff was excellent. The exterior illumination turned out great and we’ve received lots of positive comments.
Michael Bauer, President & CEO, Bauer Design Build
KE is up-front and their attention to detail helped set the project up for success at the beginning. They were very responsive during the bidding phase and provided several VE options along the way that we were able to bring to the client for consideration. As in most projects, the client can throw us a curveball at any time. KE was very responsive at those moments and these adjustments were handled with ease. There was no sternness with making those adjustments as they came up. Throughout the project, (office staff and field staff) were safe and proficient in their field. Their project management team was great to work with. Derek Klein has great communication skills, he's organized and is very knowledgeable. He was always available when needed, was on-site as needed throughout the project, and gave good direction to the foreman on-site. The on-site crew(s) have been great. KE has come through with expanded crew size and longer hours to get tasks done when needed. There is no "This isn't my job" attitude from any of the KE staff. They are a good team player. They are safe and go above and beyond when needed. We look forward to doing another project with KE and would highly recommend them.
Troy Staples, Pate Bonding Inc.
Over the years we have bonded with Knobelsdorff, they have handled all of their projects in an extremely professional manner, and we highly recommend them. All work has always been completed to the owners' satisfaction. All KE staff has been very easy to work with and always have the customer's best interest in mind.
Taite Plaas, Vice President, Plaas Incorporated
Collaborating with KE throughout the work, we were pleased to complete our scope of work on time without an injury and we thank KE for their efforts to aid in our success. As a subcontractor, it was refreshing that with a simple pre-work approval process we were allowed to utilize our expertise to apply innovative solutions to situations as they arose. We were glad to be a part of the team that brought this project online in a successful manner and look forward to working with KE on future projects.

Thomas Shea, Portfolio Manager, Northwind Solutions
At Northwind Solutions, we are an O&M based company that works with in the renewable energy sector. We first heard of Knobelsdorff Energy when we were looking for a local company in the Minneapolis Minnesota to preform some medium voltage inspection on a few of our solar farms in the surrounding area. With being an out of country-based company originally we were looking for an reliable subcontractor to help us complete some maintenance tasks. We wanted a team that could handle support for anything from medium voltage down to weed abatement on sites. This is where Knobelsdorff exceeded our expectations! With prompt and reliable service they were able to handle anything we through there way. With Knobelsdorff being able to handle these issues left our team free to handle other preventative maintenance and emergency response calls. As the industry expands I can only envision our partnership with Knobelsdorff expanding along with it!

The team at Knobelsdorff did it again! They continue to provide the highest level of customer service and product quality. They helped us out of a major pinch by meeting a very difficult timeline. I could not be happier. I've been working with the Knobelsdorff team for 15 years now and they just keep getting better!

From training on the new system, troubleshooting issues, and working around our production schedule, Dylan and Nic have both done a great job. Quick to answer calls both day and night. Explained issues and their corrections in a way we could all understand. Made changes we needed quickly and efficiently. And communicated well with everyone at the plant including other contractors. Overall it was a very positive experience working with those guys.
