The new PCV Business Line, including the core Krebs pumps portfolio, will be led by Pat Turner as president. Turner has a long history at FLSmidth, having first joined the company in 1982. He has previously led the PCV business and significantly accelerated its growth. He also led the purchase of the millMAX pump line in 1999. He was president for FLSmidth’s North American Region until 2022.

While the business has achieved good growth over the years, FLSmidth says it has clear ambitions to strengthen its market position even further with PCV.

“When we launched our CORE’26 strategy in early 2023, we called out PCV as a key strategic focus area,” said Mikko Keto, Group CEO at FLSmidth. “While our PCV business has delivered strong growth in recent years, it still holds significant untapped potential. Combined with what we believe are the best pumps in the market, I am fully convinced that we will deliver – or perhaps even exceed – our own ambitions for PCV in the long-term.”

Turner said: “I am very excited to return FLSmidth and to help unlock our full potential within PCV. Energy efficiency and productivity are two of the most important factors driving the mining industry, and I firmly believe that our market-leading PCV technologies offer a unique value proposition to our customers.”
