The History of KB

For 40 years KB has dedicated itself to produce the best variable speed controls for AC and DC Drives. From the beginning, our philosophy of "You get more value with KB Drives" has never changed. Our goal was to give our customers more benefits, better reliability, at lower prices. Although KB originally catered to OEM's (we still maintain a strong position in that marketplace), the early 1980's brought about the beginning of our distribution network. Our broad-based product line has gained worldwide acceptance. These off-the-shelf standard and custom AC and DC motor speed controls marketed under our Penta-Power trade name are stocked in more than 30 countries, with over 500 distributor locations.

In 1995, we relocated our corporate headquarters to a modern manufacturing facility in Coral Springs, Florida, USA. Total Quality Management (TQM) along with computerized testing and JIT/Cell Manufacturing insure consistent product quality and reduced lead times. What this means is we can make them better, deliver them faster, while keeping our competitive edge.

We look forward to serving your needs for: AC Drives, DC Drives, Brushless Drives, Low Voltage Battery Controls, and AC Fan Speed Controls.
