Sulzer Pumps has announced the expansion of its sales and service center to a new location in Durban, South Africa—a larger facility housing service, sales and project management targeting more customers in Africa. The new office, according to company officials, will coordinate with already-established service centers region-wide. The new facility will perform repairs and refurbishment services for centrifugal pumps and agitators for the Sulzer Pumps’ range as well as other pump OEMs. The center will also undertake intensive research and development in fluid dynamics, process-oriented products and special materials. Further spare parts requirements will be supported locally and backed up by Sulzer Pumps’ worldwide network of spare parts manufacturing centers, said company representatives in a statement.
