Sulzer consolidates two of its German facilities
Hosting a mechanical seal repair shop, the facility is authorized to perform repairs, retrofits, reverse engineering and parts manufacturing on all types of rotating equipment using enhanced digital technologies. The new site provides a central location to better support industrial customers in Germany, Poland and Czech Republic, according to a Sulzer press release.
In "direct response to customer demand," Service Center Lausitz consolidated and upgraded the regional Jaenschwalde and Schwarze Pumpe service centers with this move to offer regional industry advanced repair and service capabilities.
Situated near the city of Spremberg, the new service center is built to LEAN standards and designed to best ensure operational reliability and energy efficiency. The facility features a mechanical seal repair shop and uses digital solutions designed to enable recovery and reverse engineering of components.
These new on-site offerings can significantly reduce lead times, in an effort to reduce customer downtime and costs. In addition, Sulzer says it offers product upgrades that make customers’ operations "more efficient and cost-effective." Beyond in-house capabilities, a team of some 20 dedicated field service engineers is available to respond to customer needs.
