Whether you're building for LEED Construction, or just trying to be environmental, Knez offers drywall recycling and other material handling services.
At Knez Building Materials Co., we tend to have somewhat of an old-school mentality, and maybe that's what sets us apart. We help each other out. We believe in doing the best that you can for the people you work with. From the very beginning, we have been a local, family-run business, and we've stayed true to our roots. We believe in honest hard work, and we believe that our customers deserve the best possible service that we can give them. We've been around a long time, and our core values in excellent service and hard work have never wavered.
Knez Inc.'s success can be attributed to a family that has stuck together and believes in everyone doing their part. From the beginning, John Knez Sr. created a sense of togetherness that has allowed the company to expand far beyond what it once was. What started as a small company with only five flatbed trucks, one boom truck, and ten employees has grown to a company of over 150 dedicated and loyal employees that are all considered family, operating out of 6 locations, and running 50 trucks on a daily basis to serve our ever-growing and much appreciated customers.
Although we've grown substantially since John Knez Sr. bought the company back in 1953, we still think of ourselves as "the little guys." Instead of expanding out across the country, we believe that we can better serve our customers by concentrating our efforts right here in the Pacific Northwest. Aside from Portland, you can now find us in Clackamas, Eugene, Salem, Tigard, and even up in Vancouver, Washington.
What was once the view of one man is still the goal of the company today--the key to success is to get along and help each other out, to get the job done, and to do it with a sense of pride. With this in mind, the second generation Knez family--and the now upcoming third generation--will continue with our mission of becoming not just the biggest, but the best drywall supplier in the Pacific Northwest.
