All around the world, the pulp and paper industry is fighting to improve the efficiency of their operations. The reliability of all processes must be maximized in order to minimize costly downtimes, while process performance must be constantly optimized. We work in close cooperation with our customers to achieve sustainable process and profit improvements.
Metso provides its customers in the pulp and paper industry with valves that offer reliability and maximum performance. With 75% of the world's pulp flowing through Metso valves, our customers can count on our understanding of their core processes and the complete value chain – from the raw material source to the end product. We complement our valve and process control offering with full-scope services and a global service network with over 40 service centers in strategic locations.
Metso’s wide valve portfolio and extensive service know-how have earned us a leading position in the market. Our ability to constantly develop new solutions to answer future challenges continues to give our customers an edge in their own business.
As part of Metso’s strategy, Metso entered into an agreement on January 15, 2015, for the sale of its Process Automation Systems (PAS) business to Valmet. The transaction covers the entire PAS business: automation and information management solutions, analyzers and measurements, and related services. The transaction was completed April 1, 2015.
