The agreement makes Grundfos the preferred pump supplier for Miura’s overseas production.
Miura boilers have been equipped with Grundfos pumps such as the CR for many years.
“We have been using Grundfos pumps for a long time, but dealing directly with the various local subsidiaries or distributors. With the agreement, we get business aligned and can operate similarly across borders within for instance lead time and after sales service,” explained Taiji Izumi, manager in Miura’s Global Procurement Department.
The agreement will initially cover all of Miura’s Asian business, but the companies are already jointly exploring the possibility of expanding it.
“In the future, we expect to expand the area covered by this agreement further to include the Americas region,” said Izumi. “We would like to add to our strong business relationship with Grundfos, for instance by collaborating on developing new projects together”.
“We’re very happy to join this partnership. Miura is a valued customer, and by strengthening our ties with them, our solutions can come into play on a larger scale than before. We are also looking into other areas where we can do more together,” said Ole Gerlich, group director for Global Direct Accounts at Grundfos. “Our partnership may well include more than boilers. Miura is an important player on the market for shipboard ballast water treatment systems, and our pumps can make a difference in this area too.”
