The company has used a U.S. distributor for the past 11 years
Israel’s Krausz Industries officially opened its new Ocala, Fla., facility that will provide coupling and repair clamp solutions for the U.S. water and wastewater industry.
Krausz USA will provide regional sales and service throughout the country after using an exclusive U.S. distributor for the past 11 years. The Ocala facility will warehouse finished product in order to deliver immediate order fulfillment, and provide custom fabrication enhancements to base products made in Israel.
“Krausz USA will have a high capacity to understand and anticipate US customers’ needs and provide close and direct access to our products,” said Krausz USA President Tom Gwynn. “With approximately 240,000 U.S. water main breaks occurring each year, Krausz USA looks forward to providing innovative and smart water piping solutions to help maintain America’s water supply network.”
Ocala, Fla., was chosen as Krausz USA’s headquarters for the area’s skilled work force and its convenient transport access across the country. “Ocala has many skilled technicians and manufacturing workers with direct water industry experience,” Gwynn said. “Combined with its access to surface transport across the U.S. and to shipping channels along the east coast, Ocala was an ideal location for us to establish operations.”
