- KSB Global History
1871 – The first patent: efficiency is a fundamental principle
Johannes Klein develops a boiler feed apparatus and installs it at the Frankenthal Joint Stock Brewery.

Together with Klein, they found the company Frankenthaler Maschinen- & Armaturen-Fabrik Klein, Schanzlin und Becker.
