During the past 60 years, the UK has remained a significant part of Grundfos’ global business and is one of the Danish company’s largest markets globally.

Grundfos has experienced strong growth in the UK in recent years, doubling its revenue from 2005–2023 with a focus on commercial buildings as well as the food and beverage industry.

The company's success can be seen across the UK; from the London skyline, where Grundfos has installations at The Shard, Scalpel Tower, Paddington Square, and Canary Wharf; to its support of major British brands like soft drink and dairy giants Britvic and Arla.

At the heart of Grundfos’ success is its continued commitment to meet the world’s water and energy climate challenges, through innovation and a shared determination to move and transform water via intelligent, sustainable, and energy-efficient solutions for use in buildings, industry, and utilities.

Glynn Williams, UK managing director at Grundfos since 2020, believes it’s this commitment, combined with a clear focus on customers’ individual needs that ensures Grundfos is still going strong in the UK after 60 years.

“Our longstanding success in the UK is a result of always working closely together with our customers to come up with tailormade solutions that make a real difference for them, diligently focusing on sustainability in everything we do.”

Poul Due Jensen, CEO of Grundfos, who is in the UK to mark the anniversary, said: “Our 60th anniversary in the UK is a celebration of our unwavering dedication to people, sustainability, and innovation. Every day, driven by an optimistic, can-do spirit, we work tirelessly for water, protecting, respecting, and advancing its flow together with our loyal customers. Through a focused approach and a strong emphasis on climate and water, we adapt to changes with resilience and care, shaping a brighter, more sustainable future for all."

Grundfos UK, which employs approximately 470 people, is headquartered in Leighton Buzzard and has a factory in Sunderland which last year celebrated its 50th anniversary.
