Knobelsdorff has again been named an Accredited Quality Contractor by Associated Builders and Contractors.
This is the second year it has earned the prestigious credential for its commitment to corporate responsibility. Only 229 of the nation’s elite merit shop construction contractors earned the credential in 2020.
“We’re honored to be selected for the second year as an AQC member,” said Karl von Knobelsdorff, CEO and President of Knobelsdorff.
“I’m proud of our entire team at Knobelsdorff. Our team works hard to ensure our commitment to quality and safety is a top priority for not only our customers and projects but for our employees as well.”
Launched in 1993, ABC’s AQC program provides recognition to world-class construction firms that have documented their commitment in five areas:
- Safety performance
- Talent management
- Craft and management education
- Community relations, inclusion, diversity and equity
“Accredited Quality Contractors are the types of companies I want to work for and do business with because of the priority placed on world-class safety, culture, workforce development, innovation, diversity and quality,” said 2021 ABC National Chair of the Board of Directors Steve Klessig, vice president of architecture and engineering, Keller Inc., Kaukauna, Wisconsin. “Congratulations to the leadership and employees of Knobelsdorff for your daily commitment to corporate and community service; you exemplify the merit shop philosophy and what’s best about ABC membership.”
Founded more than three decades ago, STEP dramatically improves safety performance among construction industry participants, with top performers achieving incident rates more than eight times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average.
AQC is recognized by Construction Users Roundtable, an organization founded by leading construction project owners.
Associated Builders and Contractors is a national construction industry trade association established in 1950 that represents more than 21,000 members.
