Koch Industries, Inc.
Koch companies have a presence in about 60 countries and employ more than 120,000 people worldwide, with about 70,000 of those in the United States. We have invested more than $80 billion in acquisitions and other capital expenditures since 2003 to make life better around the world by efficiently converting resources into products and services that people depend on every day. Some of the products we manufacture include transportation fuels, building and consumer products, electronics, fibers, fertilizers, glass, membrane filtration, pollution control equipment and more.
We have long been committed to creating real, sustainable value for all of society. For decades, Koch companies have supported education and social progress. These philanthropic efforts include support for educational institutions, foundations and programs that study and promote market-based solutions to societal problems. Koch also works to protect, conserve and enhance natural resources. Koch companies around the world have earned more than 1,200 awards for safety, environmental excellence, community stewardship, innovation and customer service since January 2009.
