OCALA, FL, Dec. 4, 2013 -- The U.S. water and wastewater industry can expect expanded coupling and repair clamp solutions from Israel's Krausz Industries with the official opening of its new facility in Ocala, Fla.

The company's clamp and coupling solutions, including its Hymax two-bolt couplings, provide ease of use, performance in extreme conditions and long life. Further, the company's water piping repair and coupling solutions are easily implemented and minimize installation time.

Krausz USA will provide regional sales and service throughout the country after using an exclusive U.S. distributor for the past 11 years. The Ocala facility will warehouse finished product in order to deliver immediate order fulfillment and provide custom fabrication enhancements to base products made in Israel.

Accordingly, the city of Ocala was chosen as Krausz's headquarters for the area's highly-skilled workforce and its convenient transport access across the country. "Ocala has many skilled technicians and manufacturing workers with direct water industry experience," said Krausz USA President Tom Gwynn. "Combined with its access to surface transport across the U.S. and to shipping channels along the east coast, Ocala was an ideal location for us to establish operations."
