On Friday 25 May 2012 South Africa celebrated with all their colleagues and those around the world the 100th Birthday of Poul Due Jensen as well as the 50th year that the first Grundfos pump was sold in South Africa. Both these are significant milestones for us to reach as a company.
As a unique way of celebrating we held a “party” with a difference. The staff were encouraged to dress up like their childhood hero and attend a “kiddies party” to add some fun to the day.
It is also not all about us. As part of the celebration Grundfos South Africa decided to make it a meaningful event and have tied it into a customer sales initiative and grow our sales by offering a great prize to our customers and grow our order book over the next 50 selling days by R100 million in new sales.
Along with this we have a charity drive for the next 50 days to collect as much loose change as possible and make a donation to a charity.
