The KSB Group is mourning the death of Dr. Wolfgang Kühborth. Having served for many years as the head of the Frankenthal-based pumps and valves Group, Dr Kühborth died at the age of 92 following a brief but serious illness. As a descendant of KSB’s founding family Klein, he shaped the course of the company’s history, in particular in his capacity as Member and Chairman of the Board of Management of KSB Aktiengesellschaft and in later years as Chairman of the Supervisory Board. “Dr. Wolfgang Kühborth was a charismatic entrepreneur,” said the Members of the Board of Management Dr. Peter Buthmann and Werner Stegmüller in respectful remembrance of the deceased. “Over a career spanning some 50 years, he greatly influenced the development of the company during the post-war period and steered the KSB Group into a global role.” Dr. Kühborth developed KSB from a renowned mechanical engineering company into an international market leader with sales and production companies on five continents.
