Hauck to Market Kromschroder Burners
November 1, 2006
Following a reallocation of products among three sister companies, Kromschroder burners will be sold under the Hauck label and join the sister company’s family of combustion products.
Hauck Manufacturing Co., Lebanon, Pa., will market selected Kromschroder and LBE burner lines in North America. Kromschroder Inc., Hudson, Ohio, will no longer market burners in North America. Instead, it will focus its efforts on servicing OEMs and end-users in the industrial market with the company’s combustion control products and strategies, including its Valvario and BCU product lines, according to Steve Ogonek, president of Kromschroder Inc.
LBE, a manufacturer of multi-fuel and self-recuperative burners, is located in Wuppertal, Germany, and is the source for Hauck’s products in Europe.
Mike Shay, president of Hauck Manufacturing Co., said, “The addition of the Kromschroder and LBE burner lines provides our customers with direct access to several unique products backed by the combustion system expertise of Hauck Manufacturing.”
Hauck Manufacturing Co., Kromschroder and the LBE organizations are part of a family of companies within the Elster Group, headquartered in Luxembourg and Essen, Germany.
