Grundfos Pumps: Their History

The late Poul Due Jensen founded Grundfos Pumps in 1945 in Bjerringbro. They were originally called the Bjerringbro Die Casting and Machine Factory. By 1967, when they were renamed Grundfos, they had been through numerous name changes.

Grundfos has an unique management structure that ensures they will stay at the top of the profession, both for quality and for innovation. In 1975, the Poul Due Jensen Foundation was established. They currently own 86% of Grundfos stock, with 12% being held by the Jensen family and 2% owned by employees.

The reason the foundation exists is to promote the growth of Grundfos Pumps. All capital and profits are reinvested back into the foundation. A sizeable portion is earmarked for research and development. This ensures that Grundfos Pumps will remain at the forefront of the industry as an innovator.
