Grundfos Robust On India Expansion

The company is also looking to manufacture its products in the country. Currently, its main products that include circular pumps for heating and air conditioning and some centrifugal pumps that are used for the industry are manufactured in Denmark

World’s leading pump manufacturer Grundfos, which focuses on energy efficient and sustainable technology to give clean drinking water, is looking to expand its operations in India through the inorganic route.

A 100 per cent subsidiary of Grunfos Denmark, the company in India recently launched energy efficient BMS hs AC (Booster Module System - High Speed - Alternative Current) booster pump for the domestic market.

The pump ensures high efficiency and energy savings due to it improved design and enhanced features. It is the latest in BM series of pumps that can be used in water treatment plants, chemical and galvanic industries. Besides, it will can also be used in hospitals and laboratories and other industries including chemical, electronics, minerals and metals.

“The future is all about intelligent pumps,” said Ranganath N K, MD of Grundfos India, that is headquartered in Chennai. With increased focus on new forms of energy like solar and water in the country, there is immense opportunity for Grundfos to expand its operations.

“The new pump can be integrated in any water treatment system and has a very small footprint,” said Saravanan Panneer Selvam, Chief Operating Officer – Sales at Grundfos India.

Going forward, Grundfos is also looking to manufacture its products in the country. Currently, its main products that include circular pumps for heating and airconditioning and some centrifugal pumps that are used for the industry are manufactured in Denmark. In India, it runs an assembling plant, where the components for water pumps are primarily imported.

Focus on Green

“There is great potential in green development,” said Kim Skibsted, group vice president, communication & public affairs. While Grundfos supports and shows consideration for the environment by reducing our own carbon footprint, its building in India has been an inspiration to many people in the country.

Globally, buildings are responsible for more than 40 per cent of the world’s total energy consumption and for 24 per cent of the world's CO2 emissions. Focusing on the energy used to operate buildings, for heating, cooling and lighting, offers great potential for reducing CO2 emissions and thereby reducing the strain on the environment.
