The Austrian screw pump manufacturer founded KRAL SAS in March 2019 and is expanding its direct sales activities into France. 

The sales manager of the new KRAL SAS is Richard Fanget, who has more than 20 years of experience with pumps. After studying technology and economics, Fanget joined the pumps industry in the mid-1990s. As a business developer, he specialized in positive displacement pump technologies. His expertise is based on many years of experience working with the global players in this market segment, such as Colfax, Imo and Allweiler as well as Johnson Pumps and Tuthill.

The establishment of KRAL SAS will enable the company to intensify their support for customers in France. Richard Fanget will also be involved in a range of demanding projects in the field of lubricating oil applications, heavy oil transfer and other special applications in power generation, marine and mechanical engineering.

The French company SiD Steiblé, a long-standing partner of KRAL AG, will in future concentrate on its core business.

KRAL SAS in Villeurbanne, France, is the third subsidiary of KRAL AG, in addition to KRAL Deutschland and KRAL Polska.
