Kurt Hoerger - Owner & Founder of KEG Technologies, Inc.
KEG Technologies was founded by Kurt Hoerger in 1992. Mr. Hoerger, (pictured at left) a native of the Swabia region of southwest Germany, had many years experience in the sewer cleaning industry as a manufacturers and technical representative before founding KEG. Recognizing the sales opportunities in the sanitary and storm sewer markets in the newly liberated East Germany, Mr. Hoerger began the company in an old garage in Chemnitz, near our present location in Burgstadt, Saxony, Germany (Burgstadt facility pictured below). KEG has grown rapidly over the years, expanding first in Germany, then western Europe, eastern Europe, Russia, and the Ukraine. KEG first came to the United States in 1996. After several management changes over the years, KEG began US operations from our current location in Marietta, Georgia on July 1, 2003 with Barry Howell serving as Vice President and General Manager. On July 1, 2006, KEG relocated their US operations to Madison, Mississippi. In August 2011, we relocated to Spartanburg, South Carolina.
Mr. Hoerger is a product innovator with a keen eye for the cleaning needs of KEG's customers around the world. He is the owner of all U.S. and European patents held by KEG for sewer cleaning nozzles and wireless camera cleaning combination systems. Working with Professor Hans Lutz of the Technical University in Chemnitz, and Dr. Gunter Schaarschmidt of KEG mbH, Mr. Hoerger has developed all KEG products with the high performance fluid mechanics (Torpedo, Royal, Floor Cleaners) plus our chain cutter line (Super 150, Mini Chain, etc.), penetrator line (Rambo, Quattro, etc.), rotor finishing line, and wireless camera systems.
KEG is a leading supplier of sewer cleaning equipment to OEM truck manufacturers and Distributors across the European Union. Under Herr Hoerger's leadership, and through his vision for the future, KEG intends to capture that same 'leading supplier' status in the US and North America!

Our territory managers have years of field experience with combination trucks, jetter trailers, nozzles, and video systems. We simply refuse to put a nozzle in a box, send it to our customers, and then forget about them until the next order. When you do business with KEG, you work with knowledgeable professionals who can visit your job site or yard, demonstrate how KEG products work, and help you determine the best application for each product.
KEG's territory managers can also perform a diagnostic on your equipment to provide an assessment of the performance of your truck or trailer; we will also provide some very good tips on maintenance and pipe cleaning techniques as well. If your current nozzle supplier doesn't provide you with this kind of 'expert' service, shouldn't you become a KEG customer today?
KEG products are the reasons our customers come back to us time and again for their sewer cleaning needs. With unique 'water driven' designs and patented fluid mechanics, KEG products produce outstanding cleaning results, and typically use less fuel, man-hours, and water than competing products to get the job done. Our customers spend more time 'in the line' cleaning and less time breaking down their trucks and refilling with water.
