Mississauga, ON — Almost two years after opening an office in Alberta, Ontario-based KSB Pumps Inc. has moved into bigger premises to facilitate the company’s growth in that province. The new KSB field office is located in southern Calgary’s Midpark Court business centre, close to major engineering and consulting companies. The office is headed by Morris Liu, business development manager for Western Canada.

It was Liu, a long-time engineer with KSB, who started the pump maker’s on-site presence in Alberta in June 2006. The objective was to develop additional business potential for KSB in the province’s booming oil industry — and to work closely with B.C.- and Alberta-based consulting firms handling big domestic or international project work. The initial office was based at the premises of Inproheat , KSB’s distributor for industrial and energy applications in Western Canada.

“While Morris will continue to work closely with Inproheat, we needed the extra space to grow our business in Canada’s number one boom region — and serve our customers and business partners even better,” says Jens-Uwe Strunk, president of KSB in Canada.

“The new, spacious office will allow us to employ additional personnel to work on new, exciting projects on both sides of our business – in industry and municipalities.” KSB is actively recruiting new sales staff and project engineers for Western Canada. The postings can be accessed through the company’s Canadian website (www.ksb.ca).
