    About the Team

    The Philadelphia Service Center is comprised of a strong team of 23 individuals, including mechanics, machinists, weld technicians, NDT inspectors, repair engineers, and project managers. The shop was originally established in the early 1970’s as a Worthington repair center, servicing local northeast clients. Acquired by Dresser-Rand, Siemens, and now Siemens Energy, it has since grown, and its capabilities expanded to support all major refineries on the east coast and the mid-west. The Philly shop is the third largest Siemens Energy repair center in the US.
