MDU Resources provides essential products and services through its regulated energy delivery and construction materials and services businesses.
Our company was founded in 1924 as a small electric utility serving a handful of farm communities on the border of Montana and North Dakota. We realized early the value of delivering a variety of services and grew our company by developing businesses around our expertise.
Today, MDU Resources is a Fortune 500 company with operations, customers and employees across the country. We have approximately 16,000 employees during peak construction season and conduct business in nearly every state.
We are the largest publicly traded company headquartered in North Dakota. Our stock has traded since 1948 under the symbol MDU on the New York Stock Exchange.
We are Building a Strong America®
Strong infrastructure is the heart of the U.S. economy. It is the natural gas and electricity that power business, industry and our daily lives. It is the pipes and wires that connect our homes, factories, offices and stores to bring them to life. It is the transportation network of roads, highways and airports that keeps our economy moving. Infrastructure is our business.
