50 years KÜHME Valves - Safety technology for fuels - made in Bochum

This year KÜHME Armaturen GmbH celebrates its 50th company anniversary.  The private-owned medium-sized company from Bochum belongs to the Hidden Champions. On the special valves technology sector KÜHME is developing, manufacturing and marketing high-performance shut-off valves, which are used worldwide in power plants, petrochemical facilities, gas turbine plants, pipelines and steel industry.

Everywhere combustible media like oil, fuel, natural gas, blast-furnace gas or pulverized coal dust must be shut off safely, reliably and quickly, KÜHME valves are in operation. Thus KÜHME is one of the global market leaders in this special field.

In May 2017 the 50th company anniversary was celebrated with all active and former employees as well as their families in the production plant in Bochum. The big party with live music, a great event-BBQ and dancing was hosted in the production halls, where usually the complex valves and skids are assembled.

But not only KÜHME became 50 years. On this day, Klaus Reusch also celebrated his 50th anniversary as company founder and owner. With over 70 years Mr. Klaus Reusch still daily takes care of the business of his company KÜHME. He is driver of innovations and the strategic development of the company.

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary, the employees have restored a traditional coal trolley in strenuous detailed work for their boss. During the celebrations this coal trolley was presented with a hearty „Glück Auf“, (Good Luck – traditional German miners´ greeting) and the support of the St. Barbara Knappenverein Langendreer (miners´ community).

Klaus Reusch: „The coal trolley symbolizes the deep connection of our company KÜHME with the Ruhr Valley Area. With innovative product ideas and a powerful „Good Luck“, we will also master future challenges“.
