Our overall strategy and vision “Metso, the best choice for sustainable processing and flow of natural resources” remains unchanged, as does the business portfolio, but our operating model was revised. According to the new operating model, effective from January 1, 2018, Metso's businesses are managed through seven business areas: Mining Equipment, Aggregates Equipment, Minerals Services, Minerals Consumables, Recycling, Valves, and Pumps.
The heads of the business areas are members of the Executive Team and report directly to Metso's President and CEO. The financial reporting segments, Minerals and Flow Control remained unchanged.
The new organization is designed to accelerate Metso's strategy implementation by strengthening our service and product businesses in the minerals and flow control markets. Growth will primarily be sought organically, but also through acquisitions. The revised organizational structure ensures the businesses are built around similar customer, competitive and business dynamics. This enables a more focused and agile organization.
