“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.”

Prior to joining Klüber, Kraemer managed operations at a Swiss technology company in the Chicago area and established and developed the North American manufacturing facility and business operations for a German machine tool accessories company near Raleigh, N.C. For the past nine years, he was responsible for the North American operations of a German machine tool company in Pittsburgh, Pa.

Kraemer holds a degree in industrial engineering and management from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and an MBA from the Isenberg School of Management from the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
