Sulzer Pumps (UK) Ltd, which specialises in the production, packaging and testing of highly engineered pumps has opened a new pump packaging centre in Liverpool to work with an existing centre in Leeds.
“The company’s success in recent years meant the capacity of its purpose built facility in Leeds is heavily stretched to meet demand,” a press release said. Load is particularly heavy in the pump packaging department where the pumps are mounted on baseplates with their electric motor or gas turbine drivers.
In addition to packaging pumps, the Liverpool facility has the potential to allow gas turbine driven compressors to be tested expanding the scope of work that can be performed on the site. The new facility will in the first instance create 44 jobs.
