Metso Corporation: Metso strengthens its industry leading services presence by opening new mining service centers in Peru and Mexico close to our customers ope

Metso Corporation's press release on April 9, 2014 at 12:15 a.m. EET

Metso continues to expand its industry-leading global service center network
by opening mining service centers in Peru and Mexico. The investments, worth
in total EUR 6 million, are in line with Metso's long-term strategy to
strengthen its local services presence close to its customers. Metso already
serves its mining and construction customers from over 50 service centers
around the world. A new center is also in the process of being built in Mesa,
Arizona, United States and in Labrador City in Canada.

Above EUR 20 billion investments in mining projects within next 5 years will
boost demand for Metso's mining services in Peru

The new service center, which will open in Peru's Arequipa in April,
strengthens Metso's already solid position in South America and provides
access and direct contact with the biggest mining companies in the area.

"The estimated investment in mining projects, for the next five years (2014 -
2018), will be of more than EUR 20 billion. The development of the copper
belt in southern Peru, with the new operations such as: Antapaccay, Las
Bambas, Constancia, Cerro Verde II, Quellaveco, Toromocho, among others, will
boost the demand for Metso's mining services in the region", saysAldo
Cermenati
, SVP, Pacific Rim market area, Mining and Construction, Metso.

The new facility is located in Rio Seco Industrial Estate in Arequipa city,
southern Peru. Equipped with leading-edge technology, the center includes
local engineering and production, equipment assembly and overhaul, parts
recovery, industrial equipment repair and maintenance as well as specialist
technical support. The soon to be opened center will also function as an
essential South American distribution center for Metso's services and
products.

Metso's new service center Arequipa, Peru will strengthen Metso's already
solid position in South America and provides access and direct contact with
the biggest mining companies in the area.

Cananea service center supports Grupo México's Buenavista del Cobre mine and
other mining operations in the Northwestern part of Mexico

"We were on site with 180 technicians to help Grupo México restart operations
at Buenavista del Cobre in 2010," explainsLeif Lindholm
, VP, Mexico and Central America market area, Mining and Construction, Metso.
"Following the delivery of our comminution equipment for the new Buenavista
plant, we decided to implement our service center model in order to offer our
best service for Grupo México. We are 100% integrated with their workers and
we aim to grow together."

The service center which was opened in February in Cananea city, in the
Northwestern part of Mexico, will also allow our people in the area to cover
all the mines in the north west of Mexico including Baja California state
and Peñoles' Milpillas copper mine further to the north.

The service center will function as a repair and assembly center and provide
specialist technical support. Our service offerings in Mexico will also
include everything from normal repair jobs and installations of equipment's
to service contracts that can include operation of the whole or part of the
plant on a cost-per-ton basis.
