  • Annual Report 2020 - Sustainable Innovation
    Amid difficult market dynamics caused by the pandemic, Sulzer was able to deliver yet another resilient performance with orders only softening by 2.2% and sales by 4.6%. This was supported by continued growth in the aftermarket business, strong demand in China, and positive development in Water and Chemicals. Solid operational execution and strict cost-saving measures helped reach an operational profitability of 9.0%. For the second consecutive year, Sulzer delivered a record free cash flow, amounting to CHF 272.1 million in 2020.

  • Midyear report 2020

Compared with the same period of the prior year, order intake grew by 1.7% on good demand in Rotating Equipment Services and Pumps Equipment. Sales decreased by 3.9% due to lockdowns.
