Sulzer will immediately start to integrate EM into its pumps equipment division. The company stated that combining the complementary product portfolios will enable Sulzer to become a full line supplier in most industrial process applications.
The acquisition allows Sulzer to close specific product gaps in its general industry pumps portfolio — such as axial flow pumps and slurry pumps. Ensival Moret (EM) offers a wide range of industrial pumps with strong positions in a broad range of industrial applications, including mining. Combining the complementary product portfolios will enable Sulzer to become a full line supplier in most industrial process applications.
EM’s main manufacturing facilities are based in Saint Quentin, France, and Thimister, Belgium. It also operates facilities in Brazil and China, as well as multiple service centres across the globe. The business will be fully integrated into Sulzer’s pumps equipment division and will generate significant synergies by leveraging scale and cross-selling opportunities.
César Montenegro, president, pumps equipment division at Sulzer, said: “We warmly welcome EM’s employees to the Sulzer family and are looking forward to growing together in our general industry business by serving our customers’ process needs.”
