It has two production sites, one in Denmark and one in Switzerland, as well as business locations in the United Kingdom and Sweden.

"The take-over aims at securing our building services project business in the areas of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning,” Dr Wolfgang Schmitt, Chairman of the Board of Management explains. KSB will integrate the Smedegaard circulating pumps into its existing product portfolio. The pumps manufactured in Copenhagen and Beinwil am See (Switzerland) will round off KSB’s building services pump offering.

The acquisition has given KSB access to a technology thanks to which the circulating pumps will be able to meet increasing energy efficiency requirements. Distributed through KSB s sales organisation, these products will now reach a broader customer base. Smedegaard’s previous sole owner, Mr Sören Smedegaard, remains in the company and will assume responsibility for sales as one of the company’s two managing directors.
