Manufacturer Grundfos Pumps with North American headquarters in Olathe, Kan., has opened its newly built Water Technology Center in Fresno, Calif., to promote water research and develop sustainable solutions. Niels Due Jensen, Grundfos chairman and son of the company’s founder, cut the ribbon at the official opening of the facility.
To promote innovation in the water industry, the center will partner with groups such as the International Center for Water Technology at Fresno State University and the Central Valley Business Incubator project, as well as with companies whose businesses relate to water use. The center will offer those involved in water research access to Grundfos resources, helping to catalyze solutions to water scarcity challenges. It will function as a hub for linking research with business development.
