KSB’s formula for success: innovation plus proven solutions

Customers opt for KSB products because they combine highly innovative technology with pumps and industrial valves that have stood the test of time. Etanorm, for example, is the most successful water pump in the world. Etanorm is one of KSB’s classic products – its history dates back to 1936. Since then, we have sold over 1.5 million of these standardised water pumps.
This impressive figure makes Etanorm the most successful standardised water pump on the global market. KSB also has a wealth of expertise in the area of circulators. We offer a wide variety of pumps for heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, and cooling systems, as well as general circulation and drinking water systems. Having supported its customers in this field for over 50 years, KSB now has a great deal of experience with both large and small pumps.

In-house research on high-quality pumps and industrial valves

In addition to pumps and industrial valves which have been established on the market for many years, our success is also based on research and development. Here, we draw on our own international network of research and development facilities for making the best pumps. An important manufacturer of pumps and industrial valves, KSB’s technological strengths lie in hydraulic engineering, materials technology and the automation of pumps and industrial valves. We also collaborate with universities, research institutes and partner companies with a view to quickly turning new business ideas into innovative products. As a result, KSB is able to deliver efficient, high-performance components and systems for transporting fluids.
