Sulzer announces Baton Rouge Service Center expansion

By: Sulzer

To widen support for operators of rotating equipment in the US Gulf Coast area, Sulzer has announced the expansion of its Baton Rouge Service Center in Louisiana. The new purpose-built addition to the existing facility will enhance the service capabilities of the center – which specializes in repairs and reengineering for all types of rotating machinery including pumps and small steam turbines.

The expansion will add 7,200 sq. ft. of floor space to the existing 10,500 sq. ft. service center. New cranage will double the current lifting capacity from 10 to 20 tons, with a large blasting and paint booth to be added. Additional machining capacity will also further increase the number of repair and reengineering projects that can be carried out at the same time. As well as adding equipment and space, Sulzer plans to hire new mechanics, machinists, office staff, sales teams and apprentices from the local area.

Glenn Doerksen, President Pump Services NAM at Sulzer, said: “We are already the premier provider of maintenance and overhaul services for rotating equipment including pumps and small steam turbines. However, we are always looking to further strengthen our capabilities to increase our offering to customers.

The new facility expansion will allow us to repair larger vertical pumps than ever before locally, optimizing project times. Additional equipment such as 3D scanners will enhance our repair and reverse engineering work for equipment from all manufacturers. This growth also enables us to support the local community by increasing job opportunities in the area. We are looking forward to announcing our opening event soon!”

As a leading pump original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and independent service provider for rotating equipment, Sulzer offers a comprehensive range of expert engineering services. The Baton Rouge Service Center is part of the company’s global network and delivers turnkey repair, reverse engineering and upgrade projects. A dedicated field services department also provides on-site engineering support to customers in the power generation, petrochemical, steel and heavy-manufacturing sectors, among others.
