Grundfos broke ground on a new 40,000 ft2 office in Lenexa, Kan. The LEED-certified design facility, expected to be complete in fall 2017, will replace the company’s current Kansas City offices.

The new location will house the pump manufacturer’s customer service, technical training, marketing, business development and other support functions for the Americas region and USA sales.

Denmark-based Grundfos employs 1,300 workers in the United States. The company operates facilities in Allentown, Pa.; Fresno, Calif.; Brookshire, Texas; and Indianapolis, Ind.; and Aurora, Ill.
