ECOTROC ATK becomes ATKN

New pipe bridges, new base frame, and even higher quality design: The partners of KSI Filtertechnik and especially the service staff of the numerous specialist dealers can be pleased about the upgrade of the heatless regenerated adsorption dryer ATK to ECOTROC ATKN. The relaunch brings some additional practical improvements, which will be clearly noticeable in terms of both installation and maintenance. In the middle of the year, KSI switches to only supplies the further developed ECOTROC ATKN.

The new pipe bridges, among other things, make maintenance easier and thus save time. They considerably simplify the filling and emptying of the desiccant containers and also facilitate the replacement of maintenance parts. 

Important: The dimensions change only slightly due to the product relaunch. The performance levels and prices (!) remain unchanged.

Looking forward to a successful cooperation: Holger Krebs (l.) and Bekim Gashi.

The KSI company from Willich, Germany, adds a new milestone to its more than two decades lasting history: Managing director Holger Krebs and his businesspartner Bekim Gashi establish the new KSI LLC in Pristina, the capital of Kosovo. In the future, Pristina is the basis for bringing KSI products to the Balkan states such as Kosovo, Serbia, Albania,  Macedonia and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

“We are very happy and proud to take this new, important step”, explains managing director Holger Krebs. “It was really much work to be done for us. Many meetings in Pristina and in Willich, and many arrangements… But suddenly, everything went very fast”, says Krebs.

The new subsidiary KSI LLC in Kosovo is now the next mainstay of the KSI Filtertechnik. Before that, the owner-managed family company from Willich has already established subsidiaries in the Czech Republic, in England and the Netherlands.

KSI assumes sponsorship for horse Pinot Grigio on Gut Aiderbichl

Pinot Grigio

KSI Filtertechnik is now the sponsor of the 19-year-old Hannoverian stallion Pinot Grigio, who is based at Gut Aiderbichl near Salzburg. KSI Managing Director Holger Krebs and his family signed for this during their visit at Gut Aiderbichl, which gave name to several well-known animal courts of grace in German-speaking countries.

“Our entire family is really impressed by the great work that is done there for the animals! This really goes straight to the heart, how they take care of the many animals of different breeds and species”, describes Holger Krebs his impressions.

The history of Pinot Grigio exemplifies so many animals that have found a new home on Gut Aiderbichl. When the Hannoverian was diagnosed with a heart defect, the 1.96 m tall stallion was suddenly no longer suitable for his dressage stall. So his rider, at the same time veterinarian, took care of the accommodation on Gut Aiderbichl. And there the Krebs family became aware of the black horse.
