KSB helps flood victims in France


With the deployment of about 60 submersible motor pumps and free service, KSB is supporting emergency teams in the South-East of France to eradicate flood damage. Yesterday, the first pumping sets went into operation in the Provence towns of Alès, Aramon and Bagnols-sur-Cèze.

The pumps were equipped for use in floods at the KSB factories in Lille and Pegnitz.

In the past few weeks, KSB has already been heavily engaged in the flood-hit regions of Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic, committing large numbers of staff, donating pumps and providing a free pumping service.

The last time KSB was engaged in emergency aid for flood victims in France was in May 2001 on the Somme.
