Offices have been established in Germany, China, India and Canada along with a global network of editors.

All such publications are produced by native speakers using local and global content to better reflect the needs of the regional communities
  • Client base. KCI’s clients include manufacturers, distributors, engineering companies and end users active in the process industries, such as engineering & contracting, chemicals, power generation, offshore, oil & gas, food & beverage, water & wastewater, marine, etc.
  • Streamlined channels. Every day, KCI editors keep their finger on the pulse of technological developments that are relevant to professionals working with valves, control valves, actuators, stainless steels, and pumps, etc. This information is assessed, collected, evaluated and edited, ready to be disseminated to our communities. However, unlike traditional publications, the content is carefully fed into the most appropriate media channels. This enables individual community members to access exactly the type of information they need, when they need it and in the format they prefer
  • In a world that is constantly in motion, KCI closely monitors trends, ideas and shifts in the market.
