The Grundfos “Pumps on Tour” – a mobile educational center for professionals in the residential, commercial and industrial pumping industry – recently visited Chicago, setting up on the city’s South Side at U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Major League Baseball’s Chicago White Sox.

Held on June 22, the event welcomed representatives from approximately 75 local mechanical contracting and industrial companies, as well as a dozen Chicago-area wholesale-distribution firms.

The Chicago event was one of 48 that the “Pumps on Tour” vehicle will host in 27 different states during 2010. Through June 22, more than 2,400 people at 29 different stops had visited the 1,200-square-foot vehicle for hands-on training by Grundfos staff and the chance to experience first-hand an array of new pump products.
