The journey began back in 1945, when Poul Due Jensen was asked by a local farmer if he could supply a pump from his small engineering workshop in Denmark. From this small and humble beginning, Grundfos Pumps was born.
This year, we celebrate our 75th anniversary and are thankful to share the same values and mindset with so many colleagues all over the world. “We celebrate the pioneering and socially responsible spirit that has driven Grundfos since the beginning and which continues to drive us today. We carry that mindset forward, with a profound commitment to fight the imminent climate and water challenges affecting all of us,” says Mads Nipper, Group President & CEO. “Today, we have scaled our efforts, working together with customers across the globe to reduce energy consumption and to help ensure clean water for all. Our talented and diverse global team enable us to constantly pioneer solutions that shape our entire industry and beyond,” he continued.
This is how Poul Due Jensen explained the power of collaboration, ”If you’re on your own you can do a little, but you can do a lot when you work together to do the job,” he said, crediting employees as a key element to the Group’s exponential growth.
Today, at Grundfos, we still strive to pioneer solutions, including taking on the world’s water and climate challenges.
