Grundfos grows its presence in Hungary

Grundfos Pumps has opened a new 1000 m2 European Competence Centre in Hungary and a third 25 000 m2 factory at Szekesfehervar, 60 km from the factory at Tatabanya, which was opened in 2001 and extended in 2005. The new factory increases the overall production capacity in Hungary by 50% and the number of employees by 25%. The European Competence Centre has been set up to enable customers to combine visits to the pump and motor factories with the opportunity to examine and learn more about the theory behind the technology — provided by a wide range of interactive tools, including 3D presentations.
