Metso opens slurry pump hubs in South America

These regional Metso Pump hubs serve mining customers by offering a full range of slurry handling solutions and shorter lead times with reduced transport-related CO2 emissions.

“Our investments in our regional pump hubs have paid off. Our customers get fast access to our experts and the whole breadth of our pumps offering. As examples of some of the latest orders, I’d like to mention this quarter’s record-breaking order of nearly 100 pumps for an iron ore mine and another major order for a copper mine in 2023, including a significant number of horizontal and vertical slurry pumps. A key enabler of these sales has been our comprehensive technical and service support, as well as our quick delivery times, effective collaboration, and competitive prices,” said Eduado Orsi, Manager, Pump Application and Sales at Metso in Brazil.

“Slurry handling is vital in maximising productivity and efficiency of minerals processing plants. Our offering has been designed to serve our customers’ needs for effective slurry handling. In addition to the major growth in new pump equipment orders in South America, customers are increasingly interested in our aftermarket offering, including our agreement-based services. To support our customers, we have strengthened our regional supply chain and assembly capacity, as well as application and engineering resources. Metso will continue to invest in slurry handling capabilities in South America and other key market areas,” added Kalle Sipilä, Vice President, Pumps business at Metso.
