Metso, a Finnish aggregates company, has completed the expansion of its crushing and screening division at the Metso Park production facility in Alwar, India.
The expansion project was conceived in order to address the growing demand for crushing and screening solutions in the Indian market, aiming to increase the availability of products for export to Asia.
India is said to be one of the fastest growing markets in the crushing and screening industry. This latest investment by Metso allows the company to increase its existing operations in India by 40%.
Pekka Vauramo, Metso’s president and CEO, said, “India has made rapid leaps in technology, and customers there are now demanding more and better solutions. The biggest stride of all is the shift from a price-sensitive market to a value-sensitive market. The Indian customers are technology-savvy and have strong entrepreneurial abilities.”
