Metso Corporation's press release on December 18, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. local time
As part of its global expansion plan for its industry leading services center
network, Metso is proud to announce plans to build a state-of-the-art service
and repair facility in Mesa, Arizona, United States. The new facility will be
integrated with our existing Metso operations in the area and is expected to be
operational during the fourth quarter of 2014.
The 31,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility has been designed around the
installed equipment base in the region and the customers' needs, which include
service and repairs to large-scale grinding mills, crushers and screens. "This
is one more step in our global strategy to continue to bring service closer to
our customers," says Randall Reisinger, Senior Vice President, Engineered
Services Solutions, Services business line, Mining and Construction, Metso.
"Metso has been delivering great service in the region for many years, and now
the team will expand the offering to develop solutions more effectively and much
faster. The service center will also support our customers in the northern part
The building and personnel will accommodate a wide variety of mining and
construction services and advanced repairs, as well as direct on-site repair and
field service. Design features of the new building include a large service area
that will house two 60-ton bridge cranes, welding and machining bays, and
offices for the Metso Services team members. "It's about making an investment in
our future, but also in our customers' future," adds Reisinger.
When complete, the center will be added to a growing list of Metso service
centers around the world - on six continents. Today, Metso operates some 50
services centers in locations such as Perth, Australia; Sorocaba, Brazil;
Antofagasta, Chile; Tampere, Finland; Macon, France; Vereeniging, South Africa;
Faridabad, India; Surabaya, Indonesia; and Phoenix, USA. New centers are also in
the process of being built in Cananea, Mexico; Arequipa, Peru and Labrador City
in Canada early 2014.
Plans for the Arizona service center were recently approved by local
authorities. Prior to inauguration of the new center, Metso is leasing a fully
equipped service and repair center in the area, allowing service to continue
until the new location is complete.
