Sulzer opens new facility in Birmingham
Pump manufacturer Sulzer has opened its new purpose-built service centre in the UK.
The facility in Birmingham was officially opened by The Duke of Kent in October.
Located on the Birmingham Business Park, the venue has been specifically designed to optimise the company’s workflows.
The comprehensive range of in-house design skills and cutting-edge technology are being used to deliver precision repairs and improve equipment performance.
As part of the relocation, Sulzer has invested in new equipment including larger, 50-tonne overhead cranes and constructed an upgraded overspeed balancing pit, which is the only independent facility in the UK.
The company offers optimised overhaul projects for all crucial industrial equipment including cutting-edge additive manufacturing and state-of-the-art digital technologies.
Chris Powles head of electro-mechanical services - EMEA, said: "We have created a centre of excellence that operates on lean manufacturing principles and sets the benchmark for the maintenance and repair of all vital equipment. Our engineering expertise and experience mean we deliver the highest quality of service and we encourage customers to visit us and see for themselves.”
