In particular this co-operation contract includes the development and implementation of individual customised solutions for technical facility management and industrial services. While Grundfos offers innovative, energy-saving and state-of-the-art pumps and systems plus life-cycle cost analysis in connection with energy consultings, DB Services commands a nationwide network of well-trained employees for selling these products at their internal and external customers.
Customers of DB Services can expect continuous quality, reliability and extensive problem-solving skills. "With Grundfos we have a partner whose quality awareness at pump technology is highly evaluated by industrial and water supply companies", said Ralph-Peter Hänisch, CEO of DB Services.
The biggest production site of Grundfos Germany is located in Wahlstedt close to Hamburg. According to a simultaneously signed contract DB Services North takes over the facility management there. "In this contract we will realise our service promises on a very high industrial level", said Peter Schmalz, CEO of DB Services North.
"For me these contracts between two leading companies highlight the start of a close and long-term co-operation, which will be a source of further ideas and activities", said Hermann Brennecke, CEO of Grundfos Germany.
