Products
With an annual production of 10 million pump units, Grundfos is one of the world's leading pump manufacturers. Circulator pumps (UP), submersible pumps (SP), and centrifugal pumps (CR) are the three major product groups. Today, Grundfos is the world's largest manufacturer of circulator pumps, covering approximately 50 per cent of the world market.
In addition to pumps, Grundfos manufactures electric motors for the pumps and has a considerable production of electric motors for separate merchandising. Furthermore, Grundfos develops and sells state-of-the-art electronics for controls for pumps and other systems. 
Applications
Circulator pumps are used for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning in domestic houses, office buildings, hotels, etc.
In industry, the pumps are used in processes as well as in the area of plant maintenance; furthermore, they are also used as important built-in parts in OEM products (Original Equipment Manufacture).
In the water-supply and waste-water segment Grundfos offers a wide range of reliable pumps for irrigation, greenhouses and for municipal, private and industrial water supply as well as sewage applications. 
Establishment
Grundfos was established in 1945 by the late Poul Due Jensen. At first he gave his company the name of "Bjerringbro Pressestøberi og Maskinfabrik" (Bjerringbro Die-Casting and Machine Factory) and not until 1967, after several changes of names, did the company get its present name, GRUNDFOS.  Both Paco Pumps and Peeerless Pumps are now part of the Grundfos offerings.
