At the women’s handball World Championship, held in China from 5 to 20 December, Grundfos will be the main sponsor. Likewise the Group will be the main sponsor of the men’s handball European Championship, held in Austria from 19 to 31 January.
This is the third time the Grundfos Group is the main sponsor of the championships. In keeping with tradition Grundfos will be visible on the boards, floors, interview areas as well as in the towns around the various venues.
Passion for the sport
The sponsorship of the two media events is a good show window for Grundfos and in addition it is a natural continuation of Grundfos’ involvement in handball. One example of this involvement is the Group’s support for BSV, Bjerringbro-Silkeborg, the local team at the top of the Danish league.
”Handball venues and the matches in particular have turned out to be a good partnership for Grundfos. With China and Austria hosting the championships the sports will get out to new regions and even to countries in which Grundfos has great traditions. We’ll use the sponsorships actively to help the sport developing further, and of course to ensure more and more people know and recognise Grundfos, our corporate values and environmentally sound technologies,” said Grundfos Branding Director, Kim Klastrup.
