“我很自豪地说，格兰富现在比以往任何时候都强大。基于我们非凡的传承，我们有一个愿景，希望在未来十年内为3亿人提供管理安全的饮用水，并成为一家气候友好型公司，” Mads Nipper表示。又补充说道：“得益于我们才华横溢和多元化的全球团队，我们将不断地致力于开创性的解决方案，以塑造我们整个行业乃至更大的发展。”
格兰富的历史始于第二次世界大战结束，当时公司的创始人兼工程师Poul Due Jensen被当地农民问到是否可以购买到水泵。然后，战后几乎所有物资都短缺，因此他不得不从零开始开发和建造完善的供水系统。该解决方案取得了巨大的成功，并且正如历史所表明，成为我们今天所熟知的公司基石。
除了具有创新精神外，Poul Due Jensen还非常重视协作，将格兰富打造成为一个包容各方的工作场所，并指出每个人都有贡献的力量。
Grundfos marks its anniversary by celebrating a commitment through generations to strong values, creating a better future and making an impact by pioneering together.
From the very first pump in 1945 to today’s digital solutions, Grundfos has been synonymous with a pioneering spirit, social awareness and innovative solutions. The 75th anniversary will be dedicated to the shared values of the company’s 19,280 colleagues all over the world.
“We celebrate the pioneering and socially responsible spirit that has driven Grundfos since the beginning and continues to drive us today. We carry that mindset forward with a profound commitment to fight the imminent climate and water challenges affecting all of us,” says Mads Nipper, Group President & CEO, Grundfos.
The official anniversary date is 12 May, where employees will celebrate in their local teams. For many, this will take place digitally, as several employees are working from home due to the corona pandemic. It is an occasion to reflect on the past, present and future.
“I am proud to say that Grundfos is now stronger than ever. Based on our fantastic heritage, we have an ambition over the coming decade to contribute to bringing safely managed drinking water to 300 million people, and to become a climate positive company,” says Mads Nipper. He adds:“Thanks to our talented and diverse global team, we continue to push forward with a constant eye on pioneering solutions that shape our entire industry and beyond.”
The pump company’s history began at the end of the Second World War, when Grundfos founder and engineer Poul Due Jensen was asked by a local farmer if he could procure a pump. Then, and in the aftermath of the war, however, there was a shortage of almost everything, so he had to develop and construct a complete quality water supply from scratch. The solution proved a great success and, as history shows, the foundation of the organisation we know today.
Besides being an innovative spirit, Poul Due Jensen was very conscious of collaboration and made Grundfos an inclusive workplace, stating that everyone has the power to contribute.
”If you’re on your own you can do a little, but you can do a lot when you work together to do the job,” he said, crediting employees as a key element to the results created.
