Our engineering expertise and experience mean we deliver the highest quality of service and we encourage customers to visit us and see for themselves.”

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 optimized overhaul projects for all crucial industrial equipment including cutting-edge additive manufacturing and state-of-the-art digital technologies. Together with the ability to design, manufacture and test high-voltage coils, as well as advanced reverse engineering capabilities, Sulzer delivers best-in-class services to its customers.
