Metso is a truly global company. We have sales, services, engineering, production, procurement and other activities in over 300 units in more than 50 countries on all continents. Our global presence allows us to meet our customers' needs in the best possible way and to leverage the growth potential our operating environment offers in different markets.
We employ more than 30,000 professionals around the world, and we have customers in more than 150 countries. We focus on businesses in which we can achieve a strong, global market position and in which our services and our technology offer significant growth opportunities close to customers.
Metso aspires to have a strong and active presence in emerging and developed markets; both markets have needs and demands that clearly differ from each other. The majority of new equipment and plant projects are sold to emerging markets, while the emphasis in developed markets is on the services business for the installed equipment base. Our main goal in emerging markets is to continue our rapid growth. In developed markets, we are focusing on reinforcing our strong position through the services business and by offering solutions to improve the energy efficiency and minimize the environmental impacts of our customers' operations.
