Mexico City/Winterthur - Sulzer has inaugurated a new test and assembly center built alongside its existing pump manufacturing facility in Mexico. Executive Chairman Suzanne Thoma attended the site in Cuautitlan Izcalli to open the new center.

Sulzer has celebrated the official opening of a new test and assembly center built alongside the existing pump manufacturing facility in Mexico City. A press release explains that the center includes a 10-meter-deep hydraulics test bed for large pumps, a digital monitoring system and a dedicated packaging area. According to a LinkedIn post, Karina Lerma, President of SwissCham Mexico, welcomed visitors to the event. Suzanne Thoma, Global CEO of Sulzer, Claude Ollivier, CEO of Sulzer Pumps Mexico, and Yves Dominique Reymond Vanegas, Deputy Head of Mission at the Embassy of Switzerland in Mexico, also attended.

“This investment demonstrates Sulzer’s continued commitment to innovation, excellence and customer service,” says Suzanne Thoma. In an article in Mexican economic journal “El Economista”, she explains that: “We decided on Mexico for three reasons: the highly skilled workforce, the working environment that enables us to establish clusters, and the geographical advantage of the sea connection and proximity to the U.S. market offered by the country”.

“We have a long history with flow equipment technology, which is critical to enabling and optimizing efficiency and sustainability within industry,” adds Claude Ollivier, Managing Director of the new facility in Cuautitlán Izcalli, near the Mexican capital.

Sulzer has had a presence in Mexico since 1955 and has its own facility in the State of Mexico, which was built in 1980. The company employs over 600 members of staff at this site, in its three divisions: Sulzer Flow, Sulzer Chemtech and Service Centre. ce/gba
