Sulzer to expand electromechanical services offering to Southern California
Sulzer acquires Brithinee Electric, a leading independent electromechanical service provider in Southern California, USA. Last year, Brithinee recorded annual sales of about USD 10 million with a workforce of 46 employees.
Sulzer has acquired Brithinee Electric of Colton, California. Through this acquisition, Sulzer expands its electromechanical services business into Southern California and gains access to the Californian wind, cement and water markets with established offerings and customers.
Founded in 1963, Brithinee offers electromechanical repair services, remanufacturing, redesign, upgrades, and modifications as well as custom electric control panel systems. The facilities are located in Colton, CA, USA. Integration will start immediately after closing.
“We have been searching for the right company capable of continuing the high-quality service and repairs that our customers expect,” said Wallace Brithinee, President of Brithinee Electric, “and we feel confident that we have found that in Sulzer.”
Jim Mugford, President Sulzer Electro Mechanical Services says, “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. With this acquisition, we look forward to welcoming Brithinee to the Sulzer team.”
“We want to assure both our customers and our vendors that our teams have developed a smooth transition process and they should see very little change in working with Sulzer,” said Brithinee.
