Our Core Values


At Knife River, our success is built on four core values: People, Safety, Quality and our Environmental Commitment.

We are one of the largest construction materials and contracting companies in the United States, a status we could not have achieved without our dedicated customers and our 5,600 team members. People are critical to our success, whether it's our employees, our customers, or the end users of our products and services.

That's why commitment to our other values - safety, quality and environmental - is so important. We are driven to work safely, produce quality results and manage our impact on the environment because that is the best way to take care of our teams, our customers and our communities.

Behind every Knife River job stands a team committed to each other, committed to you and committed to our values.


With Integrity ...

The first two words of the Knife River Corporation vision statement are "With integrity." That is how we do business, and that is how we treat our customers and our employees.
