Established in 1984, Grundfos Singapore has grown to become a key driver in the Danish company’s global operations. With advanced and integrated manufacturing, assembly, testing capabilities, Grundfos Singapore also plays an integral role as the global headquarters of the Commercial Building Services (CBS) division.

Poul Due Jensen, group president & CEO, Grundfos, said: “As Grundfos commemorates four decades of success in Singapore, we are grateful for the opportunity to celebrate this milestone alongside our talented team, dedicated partners, and valued customers who have trusted us every step of the way. Sustainability, innovation, and collaboration have been the cornerstones of our journey in Singapore, and they will continue to guide us as we leverage our experience and expertise to solve global water and climate challenges.”

Grundfos’s energy efficient and smart pumps and pumping solutions have contributed to Singapore’s sustainable development journey, enabling key landmarks such as Gardens by the Bay and the Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World Sentosa integrated resorts to optimise water and energy use. Moreover, Grundfos' solutions have empowered over 300 buildings, ranging from hotels and shopping centres to hospitals and educational institutions, to achieve Gold rating and above under the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark certification scheme.

Last year, Grundfos’s CBS division unveiled its new Singapore Innovation Hub to pioneer future solutions for energy efficient commercial buildings.

Grundfos also works closely with institutes of higher learning in Singapore to co-create water and energy efficient smart solutions. As an industry partner to Singapore Polytechnic, Grundfos provides counsel on achieving a green campus, and works with the polytechnic’s staff and students to co-develop smart solutions that support industries in their sustainability drive through collaboration, talent development, and sustainability education. Similarly, Grundfos’s partnership with Ngee Ann Polytechnic also taps on complementary expertise and knowledge to support sustainable urbanisation in Southeast Asia.

Eric Lai, regional managing director, Industry – APAC & country director for Singapore, Grundfos, said: “Singapore's journey to sustainability has been a remarkable one, and we are honoured to have been a part of it for the past 40 years. This shared vision has pushed us to constantly innovate and develop solutions that make a difference, and we are proud to grow our talent pool by more than 6% in the past year and launch our new Sustainability Lab within our iSOLUTIONS Digital Lab in Singapore  as part of our commitment.”
