The KE team is honored to accept the ABC Construction Company of the Year Award for the Minnesota/North Dakota Chapter. As a growing company we take pride in keeping our small town roots and applying them to our relationships with our customers and the level of care we provide for our employees. Knobelsdorff’s connection with Associated Builders and Contractors started back in May of 2009 when we became a member of the MN/ND chapter. Their beliefs and passion for promoting the merit shop way of doing business was something we wanted to be a part of. Since joining the local chapter, we’ve worked with ABC on developing solutions to the issues construction companies like us encounter on projects. Their team knows exactly how to drive the issues to where they need to go in order to be discussed at a level that brings solutions to the problems we face.

Automation can bring plenty of value to a facility and make it more competitive in its market, but that’s only if it's done right.
