For large operations, Grundfos pumps are popular around the world. This is no surprise because Grundfos is the world’s largest pump manufacturer. Their home base is in Denmark, but they now employ more than 18,000 employees globally. Every year, they manufacture more than 12 million pumps.
They have built their reputation on circulator pumps, centrifugal pumps and submersible pumps. They also manufacture electric motors, both for other companies’ pumps and on a standalone basis. They are also a state of the art manufacturer of electronics and controls for pumps and related systems.
Grundfos was established in 1945. They were called the Bjerringbro Die-Casting and Machine Factory. This name would be changed several times until they came up with Grundfos in 1967. They are now owned by the Poul Due Jensen Foundation, a self-reliant organisation established in 1975. The Foundation owns 86% of the company, with 12% going to the founder’s family and heirs and 2% to the staff.
The foundation is only in existence to grow Grundfos, meaning that all profits are reinvested back into the company by the foundation.
