The extension adds an additional 17,000 sq m to Grundfos’s facilities in Serbia. The expanded plant will serve the global market, primarily with circulator pumps, domestic wastewater pumps, domestic pressure boosters and Integrated Water Circuits (IWCs).
The ribbon-cutting ceremony was attended by the president of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić, and the Danish ambassador to Serbia HE Susanne Shine.
“We are so pleased to have reached this milestone just ten years after setting up our first plant in Serbia,” says Veljko Todorović, Indjija plant director and country director for Grundfos in Serbia.
“This new building helps us expand our production footprint at Grundfos and will enable us to serve our customers even better. It is a great feeling to be able to celebrate this achievement together with our colleagues and partners.”
The plant has earned a Gold LEED certification, recognising buildings that have been designed, built and maintained meeting sustainability best practices.
“Our investment in this world-class plant is a testimony of our commitment to continuously serve our customers faster and with greater efficiency and flexibility. At the same time, we are actively working to reduce our own water and energy footprint. That is our responsibility as we advance towards our commitments to address the world’s water and climate challenges,” says Morten Bach Jensen, EVP and Divisional CEO for Domestic Building Services at Grundfos.
The plant features two solar plants enabling savings of 1,333 tons of CO2 a year, a rainwater harvesting system with a capacity of 200m3 of water collection, cooling and heating through a geothermal closed loop and a distributed pumping solution using Grundfos’s own technology. The factory also implements all key certificates for quality, safety and energy, including ISO 14001, ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 50001.
