Pasadena, Texas — Sulzer is opening a new service center outside Houston, Texas—a large pump repair shop that is equipped with lift capacity to handle large machines along with enhanced repair technologies and equipment.

Sulzer’s new Houston Service Center is adjacent to the company’s electromechanical services (EMS) center, enabling customers to access a wide range of services from a single location. Certified welding facilities offer the ability to weld pressure vessels and carry out nondestructive testing (NDT) to ensure a high-quality repair.

Extensive machine tools, both manual and automated, are used in the manufacturing of new parts as well as modifying existing components to improve performance and efficiency.

Installation of additional vertical boring mill and lathe machinery supports multiple project execution.

“We have structured our new repair facility to ensure maximum efficiency in delivering high-quality repairs with minimal downtime," said Scott McPherson, service center manager. "Coupled with our on-site engineering, balancing and hydro-testing capabilities, we offer a comprehensive range of services that can improve reliability and performance of pumping systems.”

Glenn Doerksen, president pump services North America, adds: “The new Houston Service Center will strengthen Sulzer’s overall capabilities in pump services and ensure that we continue to deliver cutting-edge solutions for our customers.”

All these services are available via Sulzer’s global network of facilities.
