Service Center of the Year

Leeds Service Center, which has extensive experience in the repair, refurbishment and retrofitting of a wide variety of pumping equipment, has recently invested in additional tooling and equipment to enable it to also repair rotating equipment including motors, generators, compressors and turbines.

Falkirk Service Center offers specialized services for all electrical and mechanical rotating equipment, supporting the oil and gas, hydro power, petrochemical and other industrial sectors. The recent investment to expand the capacity of its high voltage test area has delivered considerable benefits for customers as well as OEMs that are partnered with Sulzer. Falkirk has also helped many young engineers with its continued support of apprentices, many of whom have achieved an excellent career progression through the company.
