The Finnish-owned rock and minerals processing OEM concluded after extensive strategic market planning that the best way to meet increasing demand from a bullish minerals sector was to appoint external agents to distribute this line of products.
VP for Metso Minerals' Asia-Pacific WPC (Wear Protection and Conveying) business line, Martin Prestage, said the continuing growth in the minerals sector had highlighted the need to increase Metso’s sales focus on conveyor components.
“To take advantage of this opportunity we are looking for suitable distributors to carry probably the world's leading brand (Trellex) of conveyor components in partnership with Metso."
Metso has distributors and sales units in more than 100 countries. All enjoy extensive support and strong factory backing.
Metso Minerals is one of the largest manufacturers of recycling, rock and minerals processing equipment owning several brand names in addition to Trellex including Nordberg, Svedala, Barmac, Lokotrack, Skega, Flexowell, Allis Mineral Systems, Symons and Lindemann.
Metso's sales in 2004 totalled EUR$3.976 billion
