The sale of Westinghouse, a global leader in nuclear technology, fuels and services, to Brookfield Business Partners has now been completed.
Brookfield Business Partners is a business services and industrials company focused on owning and operating high-quality businesses that benefit from barriers to entry and/or low production costs.
The firm is listed on the New York and Toronto stock exchanges.

“The close of this transaction marks an exciting milestone for Westinghouse as we have successfully emerged from Chapter 11, and continue to navigate a significant transformation that positions us for long-term sustainable success.
“With the support of Brookfield, Westinghouse will continue to build on its legacy of leading the nuclear industry. Our focus is on strengthening the business, capitalizing on our global footprint and excelling in client service and innovation,” said Westinghouse President and CEO, José Emeterio Gutiérrez.
