KSB and KSB SupremeServ North America announced today the launch of a new engineering services division strategically designed to meet the business growth demand. The new group includes application engineering, product development, digitization and automation, consultancy, spare parts, technical training, licenses, technical documentation, and warranty management.

Part of the reorganization includes the current vice president of KSB SupremeServ North America, Jan Avramov, assuming the role of vice president of the new group that will support the KSB install base as well as the KSB SupremeServ service base and the promotion of John Mitchell to vice president of KSB SupremeServ North America.

“Our growth in North America requires best-in-class engineering services; this new division will focus our combined efforts to serve our customers better,” said Luis Maturana, managing director of KSB North America. “Jan’s technical skills and leadership will build this necessary foundation for future growth in the region.”

“I’m looking forward to growing our technical prowess and building a division that our customers can rely on for engineering excellence. Combining the technical expertise into one supportive service group will do just that,” said Avramov.

Avramov will relocate to Richmond, Virginia, where the new engineering services will be based.
