Siemens has opened a new 300,000-sq.ft. (27,870 m2) service center in the Pittsburgh suburb of Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania, USA. The US$32 million facility consolidates its Power Generation Services work, which was previously performed at two separate locations in the greater Pittsburgh area, the New Kensington Tooling Facility and Penn Hall Service and Development Center. The new facility specializes in field service maintenance, repairs, modifications, and the modernization of large-scale turbines and generators.

“The new Pittsburgh Service Center demonstrates Siemens’ commitment to manufacturing and servicing world-class technologies that support our power and gas customers in the United States and throughout the world,” said Tim Holt, president, Power Generation Services, at Siemens. “Combining our power and gas service facilities helps ensure our business is fit for the future, and better integrates the expertise of our Siemens team under one roof so we can serve our customers even better.”

According to Siemens, the new facility will enhance the company’s training, tooling and process development, resource and project management capabilities, and house its sales, marketing, and customer relationship management teams.
