Supplier Snapshot: Lorentz
LORENTZ was founded in 1993 in Germany and is a pioneer in the field of engineering and manufacturing solar powered water pumping. Offering the widest range of solar pumps of any company, the company is today active in over 130 countries through a network of professional partners.
The company only sells its products through its partners and invests a lot of effort on making sure they are informed, trained, supported and able to meet the specific needs of customers locally.
LORENTZ is constantly innovating its product design and development. The company has its own dedicated mechanical, electronic and software design team with over 20 years of experience in the solar pumping sector.
LORENTZ’ Global Headquarters and Technology Center is situated near Hamburg, Germany while all manufacturing takes place in its own two factories near Beijing, China. The management team is split between Germany and China with a constant exchange of staff between the two key locations. LORENTZ is just as proud of its experienced, well-educated and loyal staff as of its top-quality products.
Operating in a green industry, LORENTZ takes its own sustainability seriously. The company has significantly reduced its waste and emissions by recycling materials, switching to LED lighting, using a solar powered generator and – of course – pumping water with its own solar powered water pumps. But above all LORENTZ reduces waste by designing its products for longevity.
