Metso Outotec, a newly formed company specialising in sustainable minerals and metals processing and recycling technologies, has started its operations today (July 1).
The new company is headquartered in Finland and employs over 15,000 people across 50 countries worldwide and its combined sales for 2019 were about EUR 4.2 billion ($6.8 billion).
Metso Outotec, which has been formed following the merger of Metso’s Mineral business with Outotec, offers crushing and screening equipment for the production of aggregates as well as equipment and solutions for minerals processing, metals refining, chemical processing, and metal and waste recycling.
Its industry-leading service capabilities and global network are complemented with a comprehensive range of spare and wear parts, refurbishments and professional services, a statement said.
“Metso Outotec brings together a long history of technological leadership, customer focus and excellence in services, leveraging the strengths of both companies. The benefits to customers and other stakeholders are unmatched in the industry: full offering that ranges from ore body to metal, extensive global services network and significant investment in R&D, allowing the company to create sustainable technologies to the customers’ benefit. The combination offers potential for significant cross-selling and cost synergies and an even stronger platform for innovation, digital leadership and growth,” the statement added.
The partner for positive change
The growing interest towards the environment and the impacts of climate change, urbanization, decreasing ore grades and electrification are forcing traditional industries like aggregates, minerals processing and metals refining to redefine their license to operate. Metso Outotec can drive these industries towards a responsible use of the world’s natural resources, it said.
”It is our core expertise to help our customers transform the industry. We offer sustainable technologies and services that reduce the consumption of energy and water by increasing process efficiency, recycling and reprocessing of tailings and waste. Our extensive offering and expertise help our customers improve their business and lower their risks. We are their partner for positive change,” said Pekka Vauramo, the President and CEO of Metso Outotec.
”We have the best talent in the industry, and I am very excited to start the journey together today,” he concluded.
“Metso Outotec is a frontrunner in sustainable technologies, end-to-end solutions and services for the aggregates, minerals processing, metals refining and recycling industries globally. By improving our customers’ energy and water efficiency, increasing their productivity, and reducing environmental risks with our product and process expertise, we are the partner for positive change,” the statement added.
