SGS and Grundfos have settled an agreement stating that Grundfos is SGS’ favourite global supplier of pumps and energy consultancy in connection with pump installations. The agreement applies to all SGS’ more then 1000 buildings.
Man. Dir. of SGS Germany, Matthias Oppermann said that it is very exceptional for an independent certifying company like SGS to settle such an agreement.
”The agreement proves that we trust Grundfos, fully living up to our quality standard. Since we started negotiations, Grundfos and we have aimed at creating a win-win situation. As Grundfos and SGS are among the world leaders each within their line of business, very interested in global quality-improving solutions, we both wanted to initiate co-operation that may bring both companies even further,” said Mr Oppermann.
We guarantee the quality of the customers’ pump systems
”The agreement specifically helps us reducing our CO2 emission from our more than 1000 buildings and we also expect to save money. However, our agreement goes further, for by combining our forces we may expand our customer services and we can guarantee the quality of the customers’ pump systems.”
Matthias Oppermann said that the first step of the agreement has already been carried out by having all pumps in the first building being replaced by Grundfos pumps. Additional 25 buildings will undergo pump replacements in the near future.
