Pumps from KSB set international standards.


More than just pumps and valves

Pumps and valves ─ this is KSB’s business. They are used wherever fluids need to be transported, controlled or shut off: from standardised applications in building services and industry, custom-made units for the mining and energy sectors to special solutions for transporting water or chemicals.

But KSB provides more than just products that are known for their low life cycle costs, high energy efficiency and low wear. Our aim is to create holistic solutions that meet people’s needs and address our customers’ challenges. That is why we offer a portfolio that ranges from standard products to custom-made units. Through our services and consultancy, we support customers during every phase of their project – from the initial idea to maintenance. True to our motto: Solutions. For Life.

16,000 employees with a passion for achieving optimal results

KSB employs over 16,000 people in development, production, sales and service around the globe. All of them share a passion for the art of engineering. It therefore comes as no surprise that we are continually creating new innovations based on our own research and development work.

The long, reliable operation of our pumps and valves is safeguarded not only by the exceptional dependability of our products, but also by the 190 service centres with over 3,500 maintenance and service staff worldwide. Working under the KSB SupremeServ brand name, they take the concept of service to an entirely new level.

Our promise: We set standards and provide customised solutions

In its more than 150-year history, KSB has set international standards for pumps and valves more than just once. Thanks to the materials developed in-house, KSB’s own foundries and the early integration of additive manufacturing, we can develop custom-made units for all applications ─ including the most complex and challenging ones.

We assist and advise our customers from the initial planning phase, to developing and realising custom pump and valve solutions, through to daily use. We always view our products as an integral part of the respective system and assess how they are contributing to achieving our customers’ goals.

Our customers know that we are not just in the business of selling products, but also offering customised solutions that address their challenges and needs both today and in the future. After all, this is what we have been pursuing for more than 150 years!
