Commercial Breakthrough for New Grundfos Company

Grundfos

A recently signed contract with Red Cross in Kenya (Kenya Red Cross Society, KRCS) enables Grundfos LIFELINK in Kenya, together with KRCS, to deliver safe drinking water to 150,000 people over the next five years.

KRSC states:

"Community based water projects have in the past been faced with enormous challenges, including but not limited to: high frequency of systems breakdown, funds mismanagement, un-accountability to the larger community by the project committee officials, and lack of/inadequate basic operations and maintenance skills. To improve and strengthen the gains made by the KRCS under the water and sanitation department, a strategic alliance has been established with Grundfos LIFELINK pioneers of an innovative water system that tackles these challenges, thereby ensuring project sustainability."

A subsidiary of Grundfos LIFELINK A/S, Grundfos LIFELINK (Kenya) Ltd. was established towards the end of 2008 with the purpose of introducing the LIFELINK concept in Kenya, in the beginning as a pilot project which is later to be rolled out in other developing countries.
