Sulzer has begun the construction of an all-new 7,200 sq. ft. expansion to its Baton Rouge Service Center in Louisiana. Breaking ground in a ceremony on December 9, 2021, the project is designed to enhance repair, reengineering and upgrade services for operators of all types of rotating equipment in the US Gulf Coast area.

This expansion has been made possible by our products, services, customer relationships and expertise. I’d like to thank everyone who has enabled this success – from here we grow and add to our history.”

As a premier independent service provider for rotating equipment and a global pump original equipment manufacturer (OEM), Sulzer offers its customers unrivalled around-the-clock services designed to maximize equipment reliability and availability. Expanding its facilities at Baton Rouge is a key component of Sulzer’s ongoing investment strategy, growing its market-leading capabilities through enhanced service center capacity and equipment.

Once complete, Sulzer customers will benefit from even shorter lead times on all repair, reengineering and upgrade projects – especially for large vertical pumps and small steam turbines. Throughout the duration of the expansion, Sulzer’s usual high levels of service will continue to be available to customers.

The Baton Rogue Service Center is a leading service provider to the power generation, petrochemical, steel and heavy-manufacturing sectors as well as many others. A part of Sulzer’s global network of service centers, Baton Rouge offers a specialized range of 24/7 in-house and field engineering services, delivering projects on reduced lead times and to exacting standards.

New machines, upgraded cranage with a 20-ton lifting capacity as well as a dedicated painting and blast booth will also be installed as part of the project.

Beyond supporting Sulzer customers, the new service center expansion will provide increased job opportunities in the local area. Sulzer is looking to hire new mechanics, machinists, office staff, sales teams and apprentices, once construction work is complete.
