Danish water pump maker Grundfos has revealed the new headquarters for its global commercial building service (CBS) division located in Singapore. In a press release, Grundfos states the move to the new location which is located on Jalan Tukang, located off Jalan Boon Lay – comes in response to the growing demands for solutions that are efficient in Singapore and across the Asean region.

Poul Due Jensen Grundfos Group’s president and CEO states: “Locating our CBS headquarters in the middle of Asia is a part of our overall business plan to be an truly global business. We also recognize Singapore’s huge potential to become a center for green innovation which is aligned with our company’s mission on promoting sustainability across the globe.”

The company is dedicated to achieving its zero-emissions targets. In November of last year, Grundfos announced a target to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, and to achieve immediate emission reduction targets of 2030. The target was validated by the group that fights climate change Science Based Targets Initiative.

Grundfos’ CBS division delivers water pump systems to commercial structures like hospitals, hotels office towers airports, data centers and airports. The water pump systems they supply provide various functions for the buildings, including air conditioning heating, cooling, fire protection, as well as water or wastewater disinfection.

“We hope to advance the sustainable building industry both internationally and regionally and with Singapore as the center of our operations and innovation,” says Bent Jensen the group executive vice chief executive officer of commercial building services at Grundfos.

The headquarters will be home to the brand modern Singapore Innovation Hub to leverage local expertise to create new solutions for buildings that are energy efficient. The hub will help bring Grundfos’ R&D capabilities closer to its customers and market as well as offer a platform for collaboration with customers, industry partners and researchers to develop innovative solutions for water and energy efficiency. After the feedback, steering and risk management initiatives by Grundfos from March to date, the firm hopes to have a fully-fledged work plan to establish the hub in the end of 3Q2023.

Grundfos states that the decision to establish the CBS headquarters worldwide in Singapore was due to Singapore’s strengths in talent and innovation, and their commitment to environmental sustainability via its Singapore Green Plan 2030. The future of Singapore’s position as an entry point to other Asean countries will also enable Grundfos to collaborate more closely with customers of the market to assist them in addressing their sustainable urbanisation requirements.

With the move to the new CBS office, Grundfos says it will boost its talent pool by around 200 employees through hiring local and international talent. The company will continue to work with both private and public companies locally.
