Kato Engineering is expanding its Authorised Service Network through collaboration with Sulzer, for Aftermarket services on Kato brand generators.
Kato and Sulzer have signed an agreement for Authorised Service through six service locations in the US and seven service locations in Australia. Kato Engineering has a large installed base within the oil and gas (onshore and offshore), commercial industrial (prime and standby), power generation, data centre, rail and mining industries. Sulzer is strategically located in the US and Australia to support these markets.
Sulzer has strong expertise in generator repair, as well as providing maintenance services to customers for turbines, compressors, pumps, motors and gearboxes. Similarly, the level of expertise offered to existing Sulzer customers will now be available to all those operating Kato generators.
Sulzer’s head of business development electromechanical services Nicolas Troussard said: “Kato Engineering is one of the world’s leading brand for distributed power generation in oil and gas, mining and marine. With Sulzer’s global network of service centres, this agreement ensures we can bring Kato Engineering users the highest standard of service, parts and technical support, right at their doorstep.”
The Kato range of generators is in operation extensively in many markets providing vital power supply. Kato brand product’s continued reliability is enhanced by periodic maintenance, planned repair and our ability to react quickly to customer’s field needs. Our agreement with Sulzer will only bolster our ability to build the Kato Engineering brand worldwide.
Senior manager of the aftermarket business for Kato Engineering and Leroy-Somer brand products, Corey Hansen, explains: “Sulzer has a global presence and a strong reputation for services of a variety of electromechanical products. 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 Authorised 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 complementary to our aftermarket parts, remanufacture, and field service capabilities that we have internally operated out of our three North American facilities.”
