SGS, global certifying company, and Grundfos made an agreement about Grundfos as SGS’ favourite global supplier of pumps and energy consultancy in connection with pump installations.
The agreement applies to all SGS’ more than 1000 buildings.
The agreement is not a fixed price agreement worldwide – business will be done through the usual channels and prices will be decided from case to case. However, the energy calculations will primarily be carried out by Grundfos’ German sales company, GWS.
Like Grundfos, the global certifying company gives high priority to sustainability. Prior to COP15 the company set a goal of reducing its CO2 emission by 10% before 2012 and 20% before 2019.
Grundfos lifts energy consultancy
Man. Dir. of GWS, Hermann Brennecke explained: ”We are going to carry out energy calculations at our experts in the German organisation to develop a new standard. This will lift our approach to energy consultancy to a new level.”
Group Key Account Director, Bent Jensen estimated that the agreement implies potential deliveries of pumps worth three million Euro by 2012.
”However, it is not the number of deliveries that makes the agreement interesting, it is the signalling effect of the world’s largest and most highly recognised certifying company preferring Grundfos, and especially the perspectives of it.”
Bent Jensen is very pleased that SGS may help Grundfos working out standards for our pumps, ensuring they will definitely fulfil the requirements of specific lines of business, including the car industry’s requirement of pumps completely free from silicone.
