A strong foundation guides us
Grundfos was established in 1945 by founder Poul Due Jensen in Denmark, who believed that there is no limit to what can be achieved together.
Today, we continue to believe that the combined talent, passion and effort of all Grundfos employees and our partners hold close to unlimited potential.
