KSB is more dedicated than ever to offering our companions with an uninterrupted supply of pumps and components. Completing this enlargement improves our ability to serve our customers, and we’ll cease at nothing to support the success of our clients’ operations,” says Wolfgang Demmler, president of KSB Mining.
