Koch Industries Overview

Overall Ranking (58%)

The Overall Ranking is a score from 1 star (very bad) to 5 stars (excellent) generated based on the Company Reviews of current and former employees at this company, taking everything into account.

The number you see in the middle of the donut pie chart is the simple average of these scores. If you hover over the various sections of the donut, you will see the % breakdown of each score given.

The percentile score in the title is calculated across the entire Company Database and uses an adjusted score based on Bayesian Estimates (to account for companies that have few reviews). Simply put, as a company gets more reviews, the confidence of a "true score" increases so it is pulled closer to its simple average and away from the average of the entire dataset.

Company Details

Koch companies have a presence in nearly 60 countries and employ about 60,000 people. They have invested about $45 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.

Koch companies are involved in refining, chemicals and biofuels; forest and consumer products; fertilizers; polymers and fibers; process and pollution control equipment and technologies; commodity trading and services; minerals; ranching; and investments.

As a privately held company, Koch Industries, Inc. does not release its financial statements or other financial data to the public. However, certain subsidiaries of Koch Industries provide information to the two leading credit rating agencies in the United States, Moody’s Investor Service and Standard and Poor’s. Koch Resources, LLC maintains long-term credit ratings of AA- from S&P and Aa3 from Moody’s. Koch companies such as Flint Hills Resources, LLC (S&P: A+ and Moody’s: A1); Georgia-Pacific, LLC (S&P: A and Moody’s: Baa3) and INVISTA B.V. (S&P: BBB- and Moody’s: Baa3) have their own credit rating apart from Koch Resources, LLC. Maintaining strong financial health has always been a priority of Koch companies, which cultivate a disciplined style of managing their businesses and investments.

Since 1960, the value of the Standard & Poor's 500 grew 100-fold (assuming the reinvestment of dividends). During that same period, the value of Koch Industries grew nearly 3,500-fold (using the same assumptions). The growth of Koch companies has been achieved both through acquisitions and through expansion and broadening of existing businesses. Contributing to the company’s continued growth is the shareholders’ long-time policy of reinvesting 90 percent of earnings.

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 challenge. Koch also works to protect, conserve and enhance natural resources; Koch companies around the world have earned more than 560 awards for safety, environmental excellence, community stewardship, innovation and customer service since January 2009.
