Metso Corp., a Finnish mining and aggregates industries and flow control firm, launched a Mesa office with a grand opening Sept. 18 officiated by Metso's President for Mining and Aggregates Services Perttu Louhiluoto.
"The Mesa service facility is strategically located in Arizona to provide local service to our growing mining and aggregate customer base in the southwestern USA and Mexico," Terry Wilkins, Metso senior vice president for U.S. and Canada minerals, said.
The new venue represents Metso’s continuing investment in world-class local services close to customers' business locations, and includes value-added services designed to improve productivity and reduce operational costs throughout the complete life cycle of mining and aggregates customers' projects.
"The Mesa facility complements our global network of service centers and is part of our investments in customer closeness, so that we can extend and improve the service we provide," Louhiluoto said.
The center's full-scope offerings include field service, repair, wear and spare parts, and life cycle services solutions. The Mesa facility employs close to 60 service experts.
With over 90 global service centers on six continents, Metso stands by an uncompromising safety standard, offering mining and construction equipment, industrial components, and a range of industry services and solutions.
In addition to facilities in Peru and Mexico, the company plans to open a service center in Labrador City, Canada this year.
