Metso Minerals has launched a new Process Technology Center in
Sorocaba, São Paulo state, Brazil. With this Center, Metso expands
its global process technology knowledge base and provides local
support to existing consulting services. The Center will also conduct
research and development as well as provide testing services to the
South American mining and construction markets.
Process Technology is a key asset to Metso Minerals' mining and
construction portfolios. The new Center employs five technical
personnel who will manage the fully equipped and instrumented
minerals processing laboratory and pilot plant. It is a collaborative
achievement between Metso Minerals and the Julius Kruttschnitt
Mineral Research Center in Brisbane, Australia. It will provide
customer services and process solutions, as well as development of
new product prototypes.
Metso's aim is to respond to the evolving market situation, where
customers require ever more specialized consulting services and R&D
from their suppliers.
