Grundfos Strategy 2025

Structured for our customers

We operate with four global customer segments – Commercial Building Services, Domestic Building Services, Industry and Water Utility.

Tackling global challenges

We operate all over the world and are present across geographical areas and a range of business-specific markets such as industrial cleaning processes, smart energy-efficient irrigation systems and flood control in heavily exposed areas.

Strength in diversity

We believe that our ambitious vision for innovation and sustainability can be best fulfilled by harnessing the full potential of a diverse group of employees.

Grundfos believes that achieving diversity in our workforce and talents, for instance in terms of gender, ethnicity and work capacity, is essential to our company's progress. One of our initiatives is the employment of workers with reduced work capacities so they are not excluded from the job market, and we want to see this happen in all countries where we operate.

A foundation-owned company

We are owned by the Grundfos Foundation (Poul Due Jensen Foundation), the employees and the founder’s family with the Foundation as the primary owner.
