Tyco Flow Control has announced the completion of a new 2400m2 extension to its Sempell facility in Korschenbroich, Germany. This marks the culmination of more than $25 million investment in the plant over the past two years to broaden Sempell’s product portfolio and service capability.

“We’re committed to bringing innovative new solutions to the global power industry,” comments David Dunbar, president of Tyco Valves & Controls, a unit of Tyco Flow Control. “The investment we have undertaken at the Sempell facility forms a key part of our global strategy. It provides new capability and additional capacity to support our key markets with leadingedge technology, testing facilities, and research & development programmes.”

At an official unveiling of the new facility extension, Tyco welcomed more than 100 customers for a guided tour of the upgraded facility alongside a special presentation from David Dunbar, and Dr. Achim Trasser, vice president and general manager for Tyco Flow Control’s global power business and CEO of Sempell AG.

“We have a significant installed base in the local German market, and the Sempell business is focused on meeting the needs of the global power industry in both the conventional and nuclear sectors,” adds Dr. Achim Trasser. “The globalisation of the power industry represents opportunities for us. By investing in our operations now, we can continue to improve our processes, expand service capabilities and improve efficiency and lead time.”

The investment programme at Sempell has created more than 125 new jobs in the community since 2007 and has improved the operational efficiency of the plant. Alongside Tyco Flow Control’s new flagship advanced testing facility for the nuclear power industry in Mansfield, Massachusetts, USA, the expanded operations at Sempell are a demonstration of the company’s commitment to providing innovative and end-to-end valves and control solutions that meet the needs of the global power industry.
