In order to increase the speed of the experiment, we partnered with EFT (Koch’s advanced data analytics company), reducing development time by many hours. The experiment was so successful, EFT became a part of KES on November 1. This will further improve our integration and help KES better develop its connected products platform.
Koch-Glitsch recently completed its acquisition of Germany’s Julius-Montz GmbH — a leading chemical and pharmaceutical process equipment and technology supplier. This expands Koch-Glitsch’s product portfolio and provides access to the German refining and petrochemical markets. At the same time, Montz can now use Koch-Glitsch’s global sales capabilities to market its technologies more broadly. This is mutual benefit in action.
There are many other examples of transformation as well.
We now have a partnership with INVISTA Performance Technologies to develop innovative solutions for improving its process technology offerings, giving it an extra advantage in the marketplace. For the last several years, Optimized Process Designs has been expanding its scope to include larger and more complex petrochemical facilities. Koch Separation Solutions, which was emphasizing municipal water systems, has refocused its vision on a number of niche applications. KSS has had tremendous success designing separation solutions for unique food and beverage applications. (So unique that they can’t be made public!)
