KBR is a leading global engineering, construction and services company with approximately 27,000 employees in over 70 countries and five continents. It supports the civil infrastructure, hydrocarbon, government and defense and power and industrial sectors.

KBR is a leader in the oil and gas industry, having designed and constructed more than half the world's liquefied natural gas (LNG) production capacity over the past 35 years and built the first offshore platform beyond the sight of land. They have also produced the world's largest Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessels.

The company was formerly known as Kellogg, Brown and Root.

Stuart Bradie was named new CEO of the company effective June 2, 2014.


KBR's roots can be traced back to 1901 when Morris W. Kellogg opened a tiny pipe fabrication business in New York. This small independent operation would later become a world-class engineering firm known as M.W. Kellogg whose strong focus on pioneering new technologies remains a competitive advantage for KBR to this day.

KBR's roots in the Government & Infrastructure Business date back to a small road construction company founded in 1919 by brothers George and Herman Brown and their brother-in-law, Dan Root. Known as Brown and Root, the Houston-based company expanded its capabilities to include major infrastructure projects, made its mark building warships during World War II and later established a significant business serving the energy sector.

For decades, both companies occupied leadership positions in their respective markets. In 1962, Halliburton purchased Brown and Root, and in 1988, Dresser Industries acquired M.W. Kellogg. Ten years later, in 1998, Halliburton purchased Dresser, ultimately creating Kellogg Brown & Root LLC, or KBR.

In April 2007, KBR became a stand-alone company after being spunoff from Halliburton.


KBR provides a Total Reward program with compensation packages that are competitive within each of our geographic markets. Competitive salaries are augmented by comprehensive benefits, which may include health care, income protection, retirement and savings plans, and alternative work schedules.
