Sulzer and Saudi Aramco Sign a Strategic Ten Year Supply Agreement

23.09.2008

Sulzer announced today that it is the first company to negotiate and sign a Strategic Corporate Procurement Agreement (CPA) with Saudi Aramco, the world s largest oil producing company.

The agreement was signed in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by Ton Büchner, CEO Sulzer and Kim Jackson, President Sulzer Pumps.

In a bid to simplify the procurement process, Saudi Aramco has embarked on an ambitious program of determining best business practices and commercial terms with all its key suppliers. The agreement with Sulzer is the first, and additional agreements with other companies are expected in the coming months.

The agreement covers the supply of products, system solutions, and services from all Sulzer divisions to Saudi Aramco for a 10-year period.

Sulzer and Aramco have a long standing business relationship, and both companies feel that by moving to this higher level of cooperation greater efficiency gains may be achieved.

This is of particular importance as Saudi Aramco continues its high level of capital investment in both upstream and downstream projects in the oil and gas market.

Sulzer is looking forward to using the agreement as a future trading platform with Saudi Aramco and its partners.
