Bill Papke, Vice President, Tri-State Business Machines
“Thanks to Knobelsdorff Electric 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 Electric was excellent. The exterior illumination turned out great and we’ve received lots of positive comments.”
Michael Bauer, President & CEO, Bauer Design Build
We are just wrapping up a project in Rochester, Minnesota with KEI. KEI's up-front 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 curve ball at any time. KEI 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, organized and is very knowledgeable. He was always available when needed, was onsite as needed throughout the project and gave good direction to the foreman onsite. The onsite crew(s) have been great. KEI 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 KEI 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 KEI and would highly recommend them. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
Jeff & Mary, Hudson, WI
"We have an older home that has been remodeled a couple of times in the past. We knew the main electrical service was a mess, with mislabeled circuits and a jumbled up tangle of wires everywhere. We were told about Knobelsdorff Electric by friends who said these guys had done great work for them and were used to handling huge complex projects on an industrial scale as well as smaller residential work. When we called, we were referred to Nathan, one of their residential expert electricians, who called us back within a couple of hours. We explained our concerns, he gave us an accurate estimate and we made an appointment to have him do the work the following week. Nathan turned up at our door at exactly 8:00am like he said he would and had every piece and part he needed to get the job done. In a less than a day, he had replaced the entire service panel, routed out what circuit did what, relabeled every breaker clearly and cleaned up the mess. He showed us the inside of the panel before he put the cover on and what used to be a tangled up snarl was now completely neat and orderly. We just wanted to thank Knobelsdorff and Nathan for a great job – you will be on the top of our referral list to friends and neighbors for best contractors!"
Troy Staples, Pate Bonding Inc.

Taite Plass, Vice President, Plaas Incorporated
"Collaborating with KEI throughout the work we were pleased to complete our scope of work on time without an injury and we thank KEI 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 on line in a successful manner and look forward to working with KEI on future projects."
