Food. Shelter. Clothing. Transportation. At Koch Industries, we are committed to creating life’s basic necessities. Every day, we work to create more value, using fewer resources than the day before. It’s not an easy job, but we embrace the challenge. Koch companies now employ more than 130,000 employees in about 60 countries, with about 67,000 of those in the United States. For us, creating value goes far beyond economic performance. It means always doing the right thing – for our customers, employees, communities, and the environment. From fuels and ranching to fertilizer and the manufacturing of electrical components and paper goods, our diverse group of companies’ innovative solutions set industry best practices for quality and responsibility. Above all, we believe business’ role in society is to create products and services people want and need, and to do so responsibly. That’s why, from January 2009 to today, Koch companies have earned more than 1,300 awards for safety, environmental excellence, community stewardship, innovation, and customer service.
