Sulzer Chemtech opened a shiny, new $9.5 million factory and office building Friday that allows the company to consolidate about 130 local workers in Sapulpa.

The plant, where the company will make equipment used in the chemical production and refining industries, was completed earlier this month.

At about 100,000 square feet, the building replaces a half dozen facilities spread across southwest Tulsa, said Chris Isom, Sulzer Chemtech's president for North and South America.

"This will be a lot more efficient for us," Isom said. "We needed a little more space for our facilities here, but the great thing is now we have everything under one roof."

The plant and office will serve as Western Hemisphere headquarters for Sulzer Chemtech, which also has facilities in Houston, Mexico City and Edmonton, Alberta.

Roughly 30 percent of the new building will be used for sales and administration. The rest is manufacturing.

With the new facility, Sulzer Chemtech will move about a dozen engineering jobs from the Houston office to Sapulpa.

At peak capacity, about 150 people would be employed at the site.

Sulzer Chemtech is a unit of Winterthur, Switzerland-based Sulzer Corp.

Sulzer is one of three tenants at Sapulpa's 43-acre Gateway Industrial Park.

Asphalt and Fuel Supply LLC, which finished its truck maintenance facility there last month, has about 25 employees at the park.

Rolled Alloys Inc., which finished its facility at the end of last year, has about 50 employees.

"It's really great to have more industry in the city," said Ted Fisher, economic development director for the city of Sapulpa. "Those are some great facilities."
