Tomorrow: It’s why we grow sustainably
KSB has been an independent company ever since it was established in 1871. Our corporate strategy aims to maintain that independence, achieve success, and build on it sustainably.
We’ve set ourselves the following tasks:
- Outperfom competitors in the eyes of our customers
- Secure a leading position in attractive markets
- Grow profitably and sustainably to ensure our long-term future
Long-term planning for success
Success tomorrow means planning and commitment today. But to achieve our goals, we also want to stay flexible. That way, we can respond to market changes and adapt our strategic projects as required. Turning our corporate strategy into business success requires highly motivated employees with a clear sense of direction. Their shared values and behaviours shape the way they act and interact with each other, and with customers and partners. Our company culture is based on trust, honesty, responsibility, professionalism and appreciation.
The ownership structure is an important guarantee of KSB’s further independent development. The majority of KSB AG ordinary shares is held by Klein Pumpen GmbH, which in turn is almost entirely owned by the KSB-Stiftung [KSB Foundation]. Created by descendants of the company’s founders, this non-profit organisation promotes research and young specialists in the natural sciences.
