Community Engagement in Grundfos

A history of social engagement

Poul Due Jensen was born on 19 May 1912 in a poorhouse in Sahl outside Bjerringbro as the son of the administrator couple. His close contact with the most disadvantaged members of society instilled in him values such as social responsibility and humanity already in early childhood, something which is deeply rooted in Grundfos’ DNA.

Community Engagement Grant

The Community Engagement Grant was created in 2020 to help Grundfos companies reach out locally. In essence, it is meant to strengthen and reinforce Grundfos’ tradition for reaching out in the local community and acting as a good neighbour, wherever in the world we operate.
