Life at Harder

We believe in continuous improvement, in working safely, and in an open flow of ideas. Some may call it company culture. We call it The Harder Way.

Our Values

Throughout our history, we have grown our footprint, our services, and our people, always innovating to meet new demands. Yet our commitment and guiding principles remain at the forefront, unchanged since we began in 1934.

Be bold

We think differently about complex, modern mechanical construction projects. We approach each project with sharp focus.

Commit to quality

We are committed to our client’s success and deliver high-quality outcomes every time, on every project.

Find the best people

Solving complex, modern construction challenges is directly connected to our resource stability and our drive to hire the best and brightest minds in the industry.

Relationships matter

We’re relationship-focused and work to create trust and connections at every level—this applies to the people we hire, and the clients and customers we serve.

Safety above all

We’re committed to safety on every job and managing safe projects for our clients. We strive to maintain a safe working environment for our employees, subcontractors, owner representatives and visitors on all of our projects.

Think big

We go where the fault tolerances are low & the stakes are high. We are trusted process experts because we always perform beyond expectations.

Come Work With Us

If you like a challenge, can master the details, and have a passion for innovation, you'll like working at Harder.

I like that my job is a constant learning experience; there are endless opportunities to tap into the diverse knowledge possessed by everyone involved in projects, from craft employees to project managers to clients.
