Boyle retires after 35 years with Klüber Lubrication N.A.
Posted February 3, 2021
LONDONDERRY, N.H. – Glenn Boyle, who spent most of his 35 years at Klüber Lubrication USA (KLUSA) in sales and marketing, retired from the company on Feb. 1.
Boyle started with the company as one of its first employees, joining the small team office at the Freudenberg facility in 1986. He held a variety of general management roles over his tenure, primarily working within sales and marketing throughout his career.
Boyle’s impact on the organization has been very significant, according to Ralf Kraemer, CEO. His leadership, dedication and perseverance through a number of business challenges throughout his 35 years with KLUSA has been inspiring, Kraemer added.
He played a key role in the acquisition of the Madol textile oil product line from Boehme Filatex in 2002, integrating the products and employees into the Klüber business and supporting the sales globally. He also has led and managed the Klübermatic business at KLUSA since the inception of the relationship with Perma more than 15 years ago. KLUSA has become the most successful KLx in sales, with the Klübermatic line, thanks to Boyle’s leadership and efforts, Kraemer said.
“Glenn is going to be enjoying retirement with his amazing family, lovely wife Denise, children and grandchildren, in addition to perhaps more than a few more rounds of golf,” Kraemer said. “Glenn’s contributions to our organization will not be forgotten. Many warm wishes and congratulations from all us on behalf of the entire KLUSA and KLNA (Klüber Lubrication North America) family!”
“One of the great joys that I had in my 35 years with Klüber was working with Charles (Poston) and by extension working with people like (his twin brother) Thomas (senior technical sales rep. Daikin, North America) and all the rest of the great people in the textile industry,” Boyle told eTC. “It was an Industry that I thought I knew, but it wasn't until Charles joined Klüber (in 2002) that I really got to see and understand what the U.S. textile industry really was. The bond that holds the textile industry together is very unique and should be an example for other Industries in the U.S. It is definitely an industry that I would describe as a ‘Band of Brothers and Sisters,’ who will do anything and everything they can for a textile brother or sister, something that has been lost in today's corporate America. It was truly special to witness and it was truly an honor to be a part of, even on my small scale.”
