Knobelsdorff Electric has been a family-owned company from the very beginning. And in the decades since this company first opened for business, those family principles and values have continued to guide it forward. Here’s a look at where Knobelsdorff Electric started, where we are now, and where the future will take us.
In the early 1980s, in a small garage on a plot of family-owned Minnesota farmland, Knobelsdorff Electric began. In the early days, it was a single-electrician operation, serving local agricultural and light industrial facilities, but owners Juergen and Char von Knobelsdorff still understood the power of personal service.
Their commitment to excellence and ability to deliver on their promises quickly caught the attention of customers. As the reputation of the Knobelsdorff brand grew, so too did the business. Soon, when more equipment, vehicles, and individual workers were needed, the cramped backyard garage no longer suited the company’s growing capabilities.
In 1990, the first true electrical shop was built. Karl von Knobelsdorff – son of Juergen and Char - now manages day-to-day operations from the company’s 45,000-square-foot facility, which includes a full Controls Engineering group and UL 508A panel shop.
Today, Knobelsdorff Electric is a full service industrial electrical contractor, operating in many different industries. While licensed throughout the Midwest, the company has remained true to its roots, providing the local service customers need — any time of day, every day of the year.
