Sulzer strengthens its U.S. manufacturing and supply chain partnerships.

Sulzer has officially inaugurated its new pump production lines in Easley, South Carolina, USA. These state-of-the-art production lines manufacture submersible sewage and grinder pumps using US materials and labor.

The expansion represents an investment of over CHF10 million, strengthening Sulzer’s US supply chain partnerships to comply with the Build America Buy America Act (BABA).

This investment aims to enhance production efficiencies, reduce lead times for customers, meet increasing demand for critical infrastructure, and contribute to the local economy.

The expanded pump portfolio now includes Sulzer’s ABS XFP sewage pumps and ABS Piranha PE grinder pumps. These new production lines create additional supply chain employment in the local community, demonstrating Sulzer’s dedication to serving essential industries and promoting economic prosperity.

The ongoing expansion of the site in 2024 will further secure US-based manufacturing of critical pumps and water treatment equipment for the water industry, leading to more local employment opportunities.

This business expansion follows the commissioning of Sulzer’s Portland, Oregon facility last year, where the company assembles and tests BABA-compliant vertical turbine pumps for the municipal water sector.

Sulzer also offers BABA-compliant solutions within its portfolio of specialized, water-related US brands for water treatment and solids reduction, Nordic Water and JWC Environmental, respectively.

Jan Lueder, Sulzer’s Division President Flow Equipment, expressed, “Sulzer’s sustained and increased investment in its US facilities signals the strength of our support for the nation’s vital infrastructure, essential services, and economy, while enhancing the efficiency of the manufacturing landscape through our ongoing commitment to innovation and excellence.”

Sulzer’s ABS XFP and ABS Piranha PE pumps have been available for order since the beginning of this year and are being shipped from the company’s Easley, SC location.
