For more than 20 years, we have been increasingly active in China. A fact not lost on the visiting delegation from the Chinese embassy in Copenhagen led by ambassador Mr. Feng Tie. He shared his thoughts on the mutually beneficial relations between China and Grundfos.
“It is very important for me to visit Grundfos. Around 500 Danish companies operate in China, and Grundfos is one of the best, making a great contribution to Chinese society and economy for more than 20 years. I am sure Grundfos has benefited greatly from its presence in China, and so have China,” said Mr. Feng Tie.
The delegation met with members of Group Management and toured the premises as part of the visit.
Grundfos started to introduce solutions to sourcing groundwater and water distribution in the Philippines thru an exclusive distributor in Manila. Since 1987, SP deep well submersible pumps and CRN vertical multi-stage inline pumps were made available locally for water works, water treatment, and boiler feeding. BP vertical pumps were eventually introduced for irrigation in the rural areas in the Visayas and Mindanao regions.As the local culture tended to focus on pricing, the cheaper brand always had the upperhand . The challenge then was to redefine how the market should choose pumps for optimum long term performance. Eventually, companies that invested on Grundfos pumps began to realize the value of reliability and sustainability as they benefit with greater production and less down time.In 1984, a regional office was established in Singapore to actively campaign for booster systems in the Asia Pacific market. This prompted the regional office to open a representative office in the Philippines in June 1995.In January 2004, Grundfos Pumps Philippines was incorporated, with annual sales revenue hitting a remarkable PHP 132 million by the end of the year.To meet the growing demands of the market, a branch office was opened in 2010 in Davao, to cater to the Mindanao area.
