Milverton, Ont. – Boshart Group has announced several leadership appointments and transitions in its North American operations.

The company manufactures and distributes products to support the plumbing, water well, industrial, HVAC, PVF, waterworks,
wastewater, irrigation and pool and spa industries.

Formalized in 2020, Boshart Group includes Boshart Industries, founded by Mel Boshart in 1955 and joined by Gary in 1970, and Flomatic Corporation, founded in 1933 and acquired in 2012.


Gary Boshart, founder and chair of the group, announced his son-in-law Jeremy Kuepfer has been appointed chief executive officer. Kuepfer most recently served as senior vice-president of IT and operations at Boshart Industries. The extensive experience he has gained over the past 21 years in his various roles has allowed him to form a strong foundation to build upon and lead the Group into its next season of growth
and development.

“Time flies. It seems like just yesterday I was 20 years old … I am extremely proud of the relationships we
have created with our leaders, team members, customers, and industry partners over the years,” Gary Boshart said in a news release from the company. “Jeremy’s appointment to this role will allow us to benefit more from his personal and professional strengths and strategic business acumen. He will lead all of us proactively and positively into the future for the benefit of our team members, customers, partners, and families.”

Kuepfer announced recent appointments within the company. In 2019 Julie Storey was appointed president of Boshart Industries. On March 1, 2021, Bo Andersson, president of Flomatic Corporation, will transition to a new role as director of research and development for the Boshart Group. Initially, Bo will continue to primarily focus on the Flomatic family of products. Also effective March 1, Nick Farrara will take on the role of president of FLOMATIC CORPORATION after serving as executive vice-president.
