Metso Outotec begins operations in July 2020

Metso Minerals and Outotec Oyj have completed their merger, forming a new company named Metso Outotec – which began its operations on 1 July 2020. It is headquartered in Finland, employing over 15,000 professionals in more than 50 countries and its illustrative combined sales for 2019 were about €4.2 billion.

Metso Outotec provides 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. The company’s service capabilities and global network are complemented with a comprehensive range of spare and wear parts, refurbishments and professional services.​​

In its press release, Metso Outotec pointed out that the company brings together a long history of technological leadership, customer focus and excellence in services, leveraging the strengths of both companies. Such a combination results in many benefits for the customers, including 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.

According to Metso Outotec, the growing interest towards the environment and the impacts of climate change, urbanisation, decreasing ore grades and electrification are forcing traditional industries like aggregates, minerals processing and metals refining to redefine their license to operate. The company expects to drive these industries towards a responsible use of the world’s natural resources.

”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, president and CEO of Metso Outotec.
