Metso has completed the expansion project at the Metso Park production facility in Alwar, India.
The global demand for Metso's aggregates crushing and screening equipment has continued strongly, and India is one of the fastest growing markets for Metso in business areas. This latest investment increases Metso's crushing and screening plant production capacity in India by 40%.
Metso launched operations in India in 1992 and has since been developing a strong footprint in the market. In 2018, the company announced a new foundry project in Vadodara to increase metallic wear castings capacity and it acquired a valve automation division of Rotex Manufacturers and Engineers Private Ltd. Today, Metso is present in India with over 1200 employees in seven regional offices, five production units and foundries, and an extensive service and distribution centre network across the country.
"India has made rapid leaps in technology, and customers there are now demanding more and better solutions. The biggest stride of all is the shift from a price-sensitive market to a value-sensitive market. The Indian customers are technology-savvy and have strong entrepreneurial abilities. We at Metso are committed to developing our capabilities to better meet our customers' needs in the changing business environment," said Pekka Vauramo, Metso's President and CEO.
