The Hydraulic Institute (HI) and Grundfos USA have recently signed a Training Partnership agreement, which includes educational and training programs designed for pump end-users, distributor and engineering consulting firms. 


Through this Training Partnership, both companies will sponsor technical webinars and e-learning courses focused on a variety of pump. Grundfos USA will host the one-day Pump Systems Optimization course on February 27, 2014. This highly regarded one-day course has been taught to more than 800 people resulting in lower energy costs, as well as reduced maintenance and down time.

“We are excited about this new Training Partner Agreement with HI as it will allow us to further grow in meeting our customers’ needs for delivering technical engineering-driven education programs focused on improving pump performance and extending product life cycles,”said Clint Andrews, regional technical training manager of Grundfos USA.

Although engineers make up a good percentage of those taking the course, maintenance, operations and sales are also represented. Besides end users, engineering consulting firms are also invited to take the course to gain knowledge and credibility and to network with end users to increase their business.

“By hosting a Pump Systems Optimization course and being the first training HI Training Partner in North America, Grundfos USA is leading the way as a best-in-class pump service center in offering total pump solutions,” states Robert Asdal, executive director, Hydraulic Institute.
