KK&K now to be known as Siemens Turbomachinery Equipment
Kuehnle, Kopp & Kausch (KK&K) Aktiengesellschaft will be renamed Siemens Turbomachinery Equipment GmbH effective June 12, 2007. Siemens acquired the manufacturer of steam turbines, compressors and fans in late November 2006. Siemens Turbomachinery Equipment has facilities in Frankenthal and Leipzig.
“With the international brand name Siemens the company’s growth will be further accelerated,” said Frank Stieler, head of the Oil & Gas and Industrial Applications Division within the Siemens Power Generation Group. “Since KK&K was acquired by Siemens there has been a further increase in the demand for the turbines and compressors produced there.”
With the acquisition of KK&K Siemens has expanded its steam turbine and compressor portfolio in the lower capacity range. Siemens Turbomachinery Equipment develops, manufactures and markets steam turbines with ratings up to 5 megawatts (MW) and compressors for industrial applications. The former KK&K subsidiary TLT Turbo GmbH, a manufacturer of fans with facilities in Zweibruecken, Bad Hersfeld and Oberhausen, will continue to operate under the name TLT Turbo.
