Becoming Neles Corporation

Metso Flow Control becomes a focused standalone flow control company Neles Corporation.
Virtual Capital Markets Day 2020
of the future Neles Corporation was hosted virtually on May 27, 2020.

Gradually taking our new identity

We are gradually taking on our new identity as Neles. Neles Corporation will be created in a partial demerger of Metso, as Metso’s Minerals Business  combines with Outotec to create Metso Outotec. The transition will last until June 30, after which we will be an independent and focused flow control company, helping our customers to improve their process performance  throughout their investment and operations life cycle.

You’ll find more information on this site. As always, do not hesitate to contact us in any questions you might have.
