Grundfos' new Water Utility Plant in Suzhou, China, planned to produce their first sewage pump in October 2008.
Totally in accordance with this plan, the first pump assembled in the new factory passed all relevant tests and was ready to be shipped to the Chinese authorities for final qualification on 20 October.
The GPC Water Utility team invited colleagues to celebrate this event and proudly showed the first pump to them along with several more sewage pumps ready for testing.
The plant has also received the first order from GSH: 5 pumps to a new Waste Water Treatment Plant in the Anhui province in East China. The Water Utility Plant could not have wished for a better start.
