Grundfos Celebrates Opening of Florida Facility
Grundfos has expanded its U.S. footprint to Florida to serve the water and wastewater industry with its solutions. In early November, Grundfos hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony at its new facility in Deerfield Beach, Fla., to celebrate the expansion.
Located at 620 S.W. 12TH Ave. in Deerfield Beach, the new facility serves as a distribution hub for Grundfos water and wastewater pumps, controls, and related accessories, and offers service and testing to the area.
On Thursday, Nov. 8, Deerfield Beach Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Denise Jordan joined Grundfos leadership and the local business community for a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new location.
“By placing a location in the heart of Florida, we will now provide inventory, personnel, and local expertise to assist customers with all of their water and wastewater pumping, treatment and control/monitoring challenges,” says Robert Montenegro, executive vice president of sales for Grundfos Water Utility. “We look forward to supporting businesses and municipalities with world-class Grundfos solutions.”
Earlier in the day, Grundfos hosted consulting engineers and municipality personnel for a series of continuing education courses provided by the Grundfos Technical Institute. The Florida Rural Water Association approved one of the courses to include continuing education units (CEU) and professional development hours (PDH) for participants.
Grundfos is not only investing in the new Florida facility, but also expanding its pump offerings to service the market. The new patent-pending Grundfos SE/SL submersible wastewater pumps feature enhanced durability for dry pit and submerged applications, and the new Grundfos SD range of pumps offers the water quality industry a durable solution to solids handling for wastewater and storm water collection and treatment that can be customized for a wide range of applications.
To learn more about Grundfos products, attendees at the ribbon cutting toured the facility, viewed various products and pumps, and met the Grundfos experts.

In addition to pumps, Grundfos produces standard and submersible motors as well as state-of-the-art electronics for monitoring and controlling pumps.
