Brüel & Kjær Vibro (B&K Vibro), one of the leading worldwide independent suppliers of condition monitoring solutions for rotating machinery, has named Ingo Anders as its new CEO.

Anders, who will be based at B&K Vibro’s headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany, will lead the global organization in growth and operational management. With more than 25 years of experience in service operations, Anders most recently served as Vice President of Operations in the vacuum technique business unit, at Atlas Copco. He previously spent 14 years as the Head of Service Operations at Schaeffler.

“I am looking forward to collaborating with our expert team to strengthen our customer relationships and expand B&K Vibro’s reach into many industries, including oil and gas, renewables, pulp & paper and steel. Our company aims to make doing business into the field of condition monitoring and machine protection as ‘easy as a click,’” Anders said.

B&K Vibro delivers actionable insights that help its customers to fix faults faster. This is made possible by harnessing the company’s expertise in remote monitoring and by implementing value-added monitoring solutions, such as DDAU III for wind turbines, and VCM-3 for the industrial field monitoring market. These offerings have expanded with the launch of BKV Beyond, a new platform that extends condition monitoring from edge to enterprise.

“We will make Asset health management easy for our customers through a combination of artificial intelligence (AI) and human expertise. Our flagship system, SETPOINT®, is powered by AVEVA™ PI System™ to provide plant-wide, on-premise applications. Our new BKV Beyond platform leverages innovative technology to provide our customers with trusted actionable insights, rigorously verified by our team of monitoring experts. By harnessing the power of AI, our solution rapidly evaluates various data streams to identify potential issues before they escalate into significant problems. Plus, with our centralized approach, our customers can access these benefits anytime, anywhere. With these products and more, we are focused on pushing the limits of conventional condition monitoring solutions and increasing the value delivered for our customers,” said Anders.
