Sulzer opens new logistics centre
Published by Sara Simper,
Sulzer has successfully finalised an extensive modernisation project in the Karhula pump factory. Automation and digitisation of the processes will take production to a completely new level, cutting throughput time by 93%. World-class measurement accuracy and digitised quality inspection will guarantee the highest product quality.
Sulzer has been manufacturing pumps in Kotka for 130 years. Now the company is entering a new era with the new, state-of-the-art pump production line that meets the highest industry standards, alongside excellent ergonomics and safety. The production throughput time of the cutting-edge and energy-efficient equipment will be reduced by 93%. This will translate into far more favourable delivery times for our customers.
The automated facilities have been designed to deliver fast and efficient workflows, incorporating digital and lean principles to ensure effective production. A brand-new logistics centre provides materials and component handling, streamlining material operations, and contributing to shorter lead times. The increased output from the Karhula pump factory will strengthen Sulzer’s entire global supply chain. Sulzer’s factory in Kotka is one of the key providers of configured process pumps, agitators and high-speed turbocompressors for the global market. The facility also comprises industry-scale test beds and research facilities.
“The new production line represents the most advanced technology in the field, and we are excited about the possibilities it offers our customers when it comes to quality and delivery times. Moreover, given that the materials used in our high-efficiency pumps are 99% recyclable, the new facility reflects not only our dedication to quality, but is also a significant step in building a sustainable future that our customers value and our employees can take pride in,” says Veli-Pekka Tiittanen, Head of the Industry Business Unit at Sulzer.
