Grundfos USA

Since 1973, Grundfos has been part of the American Pump landscape. Using the knowledge and products developed in Denmark, we have been able to not only expand our products, but our presence within the United States as well. Today, you can find our 1200 employees in all areas of our business, from manufacturing, sales, and service, stretching from coast to coast and everywhere in between. Our Brookshire, TX location is home to our North American Regional Headquarters and serves as the global headquarters for our Water Utility market. Along with several subsidiary brands including Paco, Peerless, and Enaqua it is clear that Grundfos USA is working to meet America’s greatest water challenges.

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, which is strongly reflected in our purpose and values.

Tackling the water and climate challenges

We can, will, and must play a vital role in solving the world’s water and climate challenges with our solutions. Our purpose is to pioneer solutions to the world's water and climate challenges and improve quality of life for people. Therefore, we have clear, long-term water and climate ambitions to do whatever is in our power to help achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular 6 and 13.

Clean water and sanitation: We will halve our own water consumption by 2025. By 2030, we will have contributed to providing safely managed drinking water to 300 million people in need. In addition, through water efficiency and water treatment, we will have saved the consumption of 50 billion m3 of fresh water.

Climate action: We will halve our own CO2 emissions by 2025.

Our employee-driven program, Water2Life, engages colleagues in more than 35 countries with the purpose of bringing clean water to communities in need on every continent.
