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.
On Wednesday October 16th Josh Moffett and Dan Steinbruckner surprised Karl (President/CEO) with the presentation of the ESGR Patriotic Employer Award. This award is specified for contributing to National Security and Protecting Liberty and Freedom by supporting Employee Participation in America's National Guard and Reserve Force.
When you consider partnering with custom automation companies to build out new automation and control technology for your facility, any company you choose is going to give you a different experience. We are proud of our process and know it forward and backward.
If you remember, it was Knobelsdorff’s organized approach to custom automation that first caught my eye. In a previous blog post, I provided an in-depth look at our automation process. In this post, I’m going to detail the timeline you can expect when you work with us.
"Every day in Minnesota, about 100 workers get injured or ill to the point that they can't go back to their job the next day," Paul Aasen, president of the Minnesota Safety Council. "Congratulations to KEI for their hard work to make sure their employees are not part of this statistic."

Are you overwhelmed just thinking about implementing a new automation and controls system for your facility? It’s exhausting. And the last thing you want as you transition to your new system is to encounter problems without knowing how to troubleshoot them. That’s where Knobelsdorff comes in. We're here to invest in your industrial automation training, so you don’t have to.
Today, I’ll be covering two things: Why switching systems integrators can benefit your facility and how to go about making the switch. If you already know why switching to a new systems integrator will benefit your facility and are more interested in figuring out how to switch, feel free to skip this next part and check out the following section.
There are various automation emergencies that can negatively impact a facility’s workflow. Understanding these emergencies is the first step toward identifying potential issues, solving them, and ensuring all employees remain safe.
Automation issues don’t always show up during regular business hours. Many of the facilities we work with run on all three shifts - sometimes weekends too. If they’re not partnered with a 24/7 service provider, what happens if an issue shows up at midnight? When customers are experiencing factory automation issues, they can rely on us for round the clock service.
Although our name, Knobelsdorff Electric, Inc. (KEI), emphasizes the electrical portion of our work, automation controls and system integration are key components of our company.
