Bjerringbro, Denmark — Siemens and Grundfos have signed a digital partnership framework for strategic cooperation between the two companies. The new partnership focuses on the complementary products and solutions provided by both parties in three main areas: water and wastewater applications, industrial automation and building technology.
By combining their complementary expertise and knowledge in a long-term co-development digital partnership, both Siemens and Grundfos plan to benefit customers by creating synergies with the aim of achieving sustainable global change by joining forces in digital solutions.
“We are delighted to be further extending our collaboration with Grundfos,” said Klaus Helmrich, member of the managing board of Siemens AG and CEO of digital industries. “Siemens and Grundfos are combining the competences of both companies in order to support our joint customer base in their digital transformation and in the implementation of intelligent solutions.”
“Our purpose is to pioneer solutions that contribute to solving the world’s water and climate challenges. To live up to that purpose, we are on a major digital transformation journey to supplement our pump solutions business by also becoming a digital solution and service provider. Partnering with Siemens is a big step in this direction,” said Mads Nipper, CEO, Grundfos. “Our companies have a strong position based on quality offerings and we want to strengthen this position by adding a digital layer. Ten percent of all electric energy in the world is used by pumps. Through this partnership we can provide intelligent, efficient solutions for reducing energy consumption, making a substantial difference when it comes to combatting climate change.”
Siemens and Grundfos pledge to lead the way on global sustainability and share the aim of making a positive impact on Sustainable Development Goals 6 (clean water and sanitation) and 13 (climate action).
By 2030, Grundfos aspires to be Climate Positive, and the company aims to halve its own water consumption by 2025. By 2030, Grundfos will have contributed to providing safely managed drinking water to 300 million people in need. In addition, through water efficiency and water treatment, the company will have saved 50 billion cubic meters of fresh water.
