“We’re excited for the opportunity to have Ralf lead Klüber Lubrication North America,” said Becker. “Klüber places particular importance on its industry-leading customer service and in-depth technical and application support. We are committed to providing excellent support to our thousands of customers throughout North America, and Ralf’s skills, experience and dedication to a customer service oriented focus make him the perfect fit to execute this promise.”
