Sulzer Undertakes Global Restructuring

Process focuses on customer; new structure reflects services, comprehensive turnkey solutions

Posted on May 21, 2014

Sulzer has undergone a major reorganization that consolidates its business into a more unified Sulzer brand, the company said.

Headline changes to the two major divisions – representing over €1 billion in sales – include making the Pumps Equipment division more market focused and moving the service aspect of the pumps business into a combined Rotating Equipment Services division.

The process has led to a new set-up: a Rotating Equipment Services division and a Water related business unit within the Pumps Equipment division. The third division in the new business structure is Chemtech, which will continue to focus on static separation and mixing technologies.

Sulzer said its Rotating Equipment Services division combines engineering services for large turbines, compressors, motors and generators (previously provided by Sulzer Turbo Services), with the services for pumps provided prior to the restructure by Sulzer Pumps.
