Valmont® was founded by a young marine, Robert B. Daugherty, who after returning from World War II, had aspirations of building a better future in the small community of Valley, Nebraska. What started in 1946 as a fabrication shop grew into a global company that today makes the world a better place by improving agricultural productivity and developing vital infrastructure that builds strong communities and economies. Throughout our history, we’ve always maintained our focus on Conserving Resources. Improving Life.® It’s our tagline, but more than that, it’s our purpose. It drives the work we do to advance a more resilient and prosperous world. As the global market evolves, Valmont is ready to meet the increasing demand for durable infrastructure and improved productivity for agriculture. Through our two primary business segments — Agriculture and Infrastructure — we pursue opportunities for growth, develop solutions through innovative technology, implement sustainable practices, and maintain market leadership within dynamic industries. With passion for our products, services and customers, we operate with integrity and are always striving to be better each day. Our focus on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices has set us on a journey to further prioritize sustainability across our business, retain an inclusive and diverse workforce, and grow the company responsibly. Guided by our core values and ESG principles, we set high standards so that we can achieve exceptional value for all our stakeholders. We’ve grown from humble beginnings to a team of more than 11,000 Valmont employees worldwide who are all dedicated to creating vital infrastructure and advancing agricultural productivity for the next generation.
