Sulzer is marking 70 years since it started operations in Brazil and its first manufacturing site in São Bernardo do Campo, São Paulo.

Since the first machine was imported from Switzerland in 1948, Sulzer has continued to grow its businesses in Brazil. Starting with small and medium-sized pumps for general industrial use through pumps for oil and gas industries, large pumps for water transportation, compressors and specialized services in turbines and other critical rotating equipment, Sulzer has continued to expand its portfolio.

Over the years, Sulzer in Brazil has designed, manufactured, delivered and serviced equipment all around the world.

Sulzer Chemtech's office in Brazil offers process and separation technology and services for both upstream and downstream activities in the hydrocarbon market.

Flavio Romero, Director of Services for South America, said: “Today, Sulzer’s operations in Brazil continue to grow and our pumps continue to help in the development of the country.”
