KBB in Saxony/Germany, manufacturer of turbochargers for large Diesel- and Gas engines for ship-, locomotive- and genset application in the 500 to 3000 kW power range celebrates its 60th anniversary on June 21st, 2008. In his speech, Dr. Ulrich Kramer, Managing Director of KBB could look back to a very successful business development over the past 5 years. KBB tripled the turnover and hired 60 qualified people to follow the customer needs.
A more than 7 Mio EUR investment program for machining centres, production equipment and infrastructure was the basis for this success. The height of the festivities was the ceremonial opening of the new KBB Turbocharger Test Centre (TTC) in attendance of the members of the KBB board, former KBB management, old test stand engineers, designers and construction workers and the total KBB staff (150 people). The new TTC works with gas instead of heating oil consistently to the high environmental regulations and replaces an 50 years old facility in Bannewitz.
