The opportunities of digitalization

Amongst these mega-trends, technological progress and digitalization are two prime topics. Digitalization is having a fundamental impact on consumer demands, production methods, workflows, and production routes. It provides new possibilities in terms of the functions and applications that were unthinkable just a few short years ago. We recognize the opportunities that digitalization brings and leverage them to make the future a better place and enhance people’s everyday lives. In the process, we have emerged as a digital pioneer in the industry. Big data is the valuable raw material of digitalization and we harness its power. To tap the incredible potential of this exponential resource, we are transforming our processes in the digital world—for forward-looking, networked, and varied results. We analyze and systematically evaluate relevant data. Based on the systematic assessment of existing data, we develop new business models as well as customized digital product features for our pumps, applications, and services.

Our focus—Clearly formulated

Through the intelligent networking of people, products, services, factories, and machines, we are effectively harnessing the potential of digitalization to create smart solutions. Every day, around 7,400 employees worldwide are working to make that a reality. At 16 production sites in more than 60 subsidiaries in 60 countries. The result: pioneering new products, systems, and services. In this way we make life easier for our customers and the future a better place.
