Grundfos Launches Scala2 in IndonesiaCountry Focus
The name Grundfos is synonymous with quality: the Danish company is known globally for high quality pumps and pumping systems and for its continuous innovation and development of new technologies.
Grundfos Indonesia was established in 1990 and according to President Director Gert Borrits had quite an early start in the domestic pump business. “In the early 1990s, we began releasing our premium line products and it has been a very big success. A big part of our sales in Indonesia are in domestic pumps,” he says. “The market in Indonesia is huge in Indonesia, it is probably one of the biggest in the whole world.” Grundfos recently launched its newest product, SCALA2, a fully integrated water pump providing perfect water pressure in all taps at all times, meaning that the pump performance will increase with increasing demand – even with multiple taps and showers running simultaneously.
Thanks to its intelligent pump control, the versatile SCALA2 adjusts performance automatically to both inlet pressure and water consumption in the household. Because of its water-cooled motor, SCALA2 also has a very low noise level compared to other pumps on the market – with 47 dB. The robust pump is suitable for houses with up to three floors and eight tapping points, comes with a dry-running protection and is fairly easy to install, suitable for both indoors and outdoors. “After connecting the pipes and priming the pump, you plug it into power and the pump will start,” Gert Borrits explains. In Indonesia, the SCALA2 is sold around US$500– not every household here is able to put aside such a big amount of money for a pump, but those who can are willing to buy a product that guarantees high quality.
“When you buy Grundfos pumps, you probably won’t have any problems with it for the next many years or so, even here in Indonesia, where the installation and operating condition can be quite harsh,” Gert Borrits says. “We have big expectations for this pump. We have physically launched it in seven cities in Indonesia and already sold many units,” Gert Borrits concludes. “We are confident that SCALA2 is going to be a great success.”
