Kemco Announces New President

CLEARWATER, Fla. — Kemco Systems, Co. LLC, a global water and energy technology company, recently announced the appointment of  Tom Vanden Heuvel as President.

Prior to joining Kemco,  Vanden Heuvel was business unit president at Crane Water, a division of Crane Co. Following the divestiture of the business from Crane to Newterra in 2014, he led the combined group’s industrial team with an employee base across four sites in two countries.

“Expanding deeper into the water treatment and filtration markets will be central to our strategy and long-term growth,” Carroll Gorrell, Kemco chief executive officer says. “With water shortages affecting every region of the globe, demand for water recycling to replace diminishing reserves is expected to intensify. With Tom’s background and our increasing market presence, the company will accelerate its leadership position in these segments.”

Vanden Heuvel will be responsible for the overall organization and operations of Kemco, with a focus on profitable sales growth and process improvement.

“I am excited to join the Kemco team at a time of extraordinary opportunity,” added Vanden Heuvel. “I look forward to building a strong and dynamic organization in collaboration with Carroll and his staff.”
