Pumps from KSB set international standards.


Pumps, valves and service for every application

Pumps, valves and services ─ this is KSB’s business. Our highly efficient, reliable solutions are used wherever fluids need to be transported, controlled or shut off. 

From standard products for applications in building services and industry, custom-made units for the mining and energy sectors to special solutions for transporting water or chemicals ─ we provide our customers with highest-quality pumps and valves.

These products offer a long service life, minimal wear and maintenance as well as optimal energy efficiency.

15,000 employees with a passion for achieving optimal results

KSB employs over 15,000 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 history of 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 customised pumps and valves 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. To this end, we always think of our pumps and valves as an integral part of the system they are used in, which is why we optimise them for the application in question.

Our customers know that we are not just in the business of selling products, but also offering customised solutions for today and beyond. After all, this is what we have been pursuing for more than 150 years! True to our motto: People. Passion. Performance.
