Founded in a small town in northern Minnesota, NPL began as Northern Gas Line Constructors focusing exclusively on gas customers. By 1971, the company progressed from the installation of local farm taps to the construction of several large gas pipeline construction projects in nearby states. By 1973, the company was renamed Northern Pipeline Construction Co., and a few years later, moved its headquarters to Minneapolis-St. Paul. A decade later, the company arrived at its current location in Phoenix, Arizona.
In 2008, Northern Pipeline became NPL Construction Co., and today, the company is recognized as a leader in energy construction with a reputation for excellence in reliability, performance and customer satisfaction.
