Sulzer Becomes Kato Maintenance Partner

Company News, Commercial & Manufacturing Facilities, Electrical Systems, EMEA, Americas, APAC, Supplier News
Sulzer has signed a partnership deal with Kato Engineering to provide repair and maintenance services for generators in North America and Australia.


The new agreement brings local maintenance and repair services support for Kato generators in the United States and Australia through Sulzer's extensive network of service centers, and also expands on an existing marketing collaboration with Nidec Motors which owns the Kato Engineering brand.


Kato generators are used extensively in the oil and gas, mining and power generation sectors where periodic maintenance and planned repairs are essential.


Nicolas Troussard, Head of Business Development electromechanical services, explains:

"As a reseller, distributor and an authorized service center for motors and generators, Sulzer has a global presence that can offer many benefits to customers with equipment from Nidec and Kato. This agreement brings Sulzer’s expert maintenance capabilities in close proximity to Kato’s customers, giving them access to local expertise and support. For Sulzer, it reinforces the product offering for our existing customers, and it strengthens our position for distributed power applications in mining, oil and gas and the offshore sectors."


Explaining the importance of delivering local maintenance support with the backing of original equipment manufacturer (OEM), Corey Hansen, Senior Manager Aftermarket Business at Kato Engineering, says:

"Kato Engineering is actively looking to expand our service network to ensure strong global coverage and service support strategically located close to our product in the field. This Authorized Service Agreement with Sulzer has provided the opportunity to partner with an established company that has hands-on experience with our products. This Agreement will be complimentary to our Aftermarket Parts, Remanufacture, and Field Service capabilities that we have internally operating out of our three North American facilities."


Jim Mugford, President and Global Head of Sulzer’s electromechanical services division which operates high voltage coil manufacturing facilities in Birmingham in the United Kingdom and Brisbane, Australia, says:

"The newest agreement with Kato generators reinforces the need for high-quality service and technical expertise in modern industrial applications.


"Our global service center network together with our extensive knowledge and experience will ensure that customers receive the highest standard of service."
