KB Electronics, Inc. of Coral Springs, FL, a manufacturer of AC drives and DC drives from fractional through 5 horsepower, welcomed Congressman Ted Deutch to their facilities on May 1, 2012.
KB products consist of energy saving variable-speed drives (VSD’s). Energy savings is realized by using variable motor speed instead of constant motor speed. Other benefits of using VSD’s include less equipment wear resulting in lower maintenance costs.
“We were honored to have the Congressman visit our manufacturing facility” says Michael Neider, executive vice president of KB. “We are proud of our continued success and being able to help the local economy by keeping the assembly and design of our products here in Coral Springs.”
KB’s continued growth will provide job opportunities to local residents. Their hands-on training programs provide individuals with new knowledge and skills. This is beneficial to both KB and the Coral Springs community.
“Across America, we are witnessing a resurgence of manufacturing, and thanks to innovative manufacturers like KB Electronics, Inc. this growth is taking root in South Florida,” said Congressman Ted Deutch. “Touring KB’s facility only reinforced my commitment to investing in research and development, technical training, and other initiatives that promote growth and job creation in our manufacturing sector.”
Highlights of Congressman Deutch’s visit included a tour of KB’s extensive testing area, surface mount machinery and the engineering lab.
