Metso to provide expanded service levels by opening new service center in
Querétaro,
Mexico

Metso Corporation press release on March 26, 2015, at 12:00 a.m. noon EET

Metso is opening a new valve and field device service center in Querétaro,
Mexico. The new service center offers the latest technology and know-how to
carry out high-quality maintenance and repair work on Metso and third-party
devices, such as valves, actuators and pumps. The service center's primary
customer base consists of customers in the oil and gas, pulp and paper, and
mining industries.

At the moment, Metso has 10 valve service centers and authorized repair
facilities throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. Of Metso's more
than 90 service centers globally, over 40 of them serve flow control
customers. In 2014, 60% of Metso's orders received came from the services
business.

"Metso's installed base in Mexico has been growing over the years, so we want
to strengthen our valve and field device service capability for the
petrochemical, energy, oil and gas, mining, and pulp and paper industries.
The new center is strategically located in an industrial area in Central
Mexico within easy reach of the 35 largest customers served by our service
and repair business," says Cliff Smith, Vice President, Services, Flow
Control, North America market area.

The facility will have ample storage capacity to keep an inventory of the most
commonly required valve package components needed for emergency and scheduled
repair and maintenance services. In addition to repair, spare parts, and
refurbishment, the service center offers upgrades, training programs, field
support and diagnostic services.

The service center personnel will be spending more time working directly with
customers to help them better utilize the intelligence that is already
present in Metso's flow control technology currently installed in the plant.
By taking advantage of these intelligent capabilities, customers can make
more accurate and timely predictions of maintenance requirements as well as
improve uptime and reduce operating costs.

"Our new facility will accommodate additional equipment and will enable us to
expand our staff of factory-certified technicians to keep pace with the
demand for Metso-authorized service, which carries the same warranty as new
Metso flow control products. The new and modern service center also puts us
in a better position to stage, test and repair large numbers of valves to
meet our customers' high-volume, fast-turnaround repair and service needs
during scheduled plant shutdowns," summarizes Smith.
