Finnish industrial machinery company Metso continues its expansion into the global aggregates market with 14 new distribution agreements signed in 2017.
The agreements, which involve Metso’s crushing and screening offerings for the construction industry, include Texas, which is one of the main markets for mobile equipment, as well as new markets Qatar, Morocco and Papua, New Guinea, the company says.
Several other agreements were also finalized across the United States and Europe this year.
“Developing a global distribution community is one of the strategic focus areas within Metso’s Aggregates business,” says Markku Simula, Head of Aggregates business at Metso. “We build strategic partnerships which, in cooperation with our product and service development teams, will shape Metso’s future offering and create the best possible value for our customers.”
Metso serves the mining, aggregates, recycling, oil, gas, pulp, paper and process industries. The company, which has well more than 100 official distributors, focuses on providing technology and services in more than 50 countries.
“We are constantly looking for new, best-in-class channel partners as well as developing the performance of our existing community,” says says Adrian Wood, Head of Global Aggregates Distribution at Metso. “We are particularly interested in joining forces with distributors who are eager to develop further their service capabilities.”
