Sulzer has bought Brithinee Electric, an independent electromechanical service provider based in Colton, Southern California, USA.
Founded in 1963, Brithinee offers electromechanical repair services, remanufacturing, redesign, upgrades, and modifications as well as custom electric control panel systems. Brithinee has annual sales of about US$10 million and 46 employees.
Through the acquisition of Brithinee, Sulzer expands its electromechanical services business into Southern California and gains access to the Californian wind, cement and water markets.
Jim Mugford, president of Sulzer Electro Mechanical Services, said: “Brithinee strongly complements our existing service network in the Western United States and Texas. The company has an outstanding reputation with its customers, including key customers in renewable power generation and water as well as wastewater markets.”
