Grundfos is a pump manufacturer, based in Denmark, with an annual production of more than 16 million pump units.

Through 83 companies they are directly accessible in 56 countries, and through their network of partners, distributors and subdealers, they are present in even more. The company employs around 19,280 people today. Poul Due Jensen founded the company in 1945 from his basement in Bjerringbro, Denmark. The first pump made was a water pump. Through the decades, we have sharpened our skills, and to this day, we take pride in moving water to where it should be. Using as little energy as possible when doing it.

“The UN has set 17 very ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 15 of these 17 goals relate directly or indirectly to water. I am placing particular significance on goal 6, that relates to access to clean water and sanitation for everyone. We and our technology can make a real difference to the world in this area. We are – in my clear opinion – a SDG 6 company.

Our knowledge and water technology can move the world in a positive direction. By purifying surface water for drinking. By making water available in refugee communities. And by moving water energy efficiently, so that we take care of the globe while doing so. We are making a difference because we can.”
