Metso officially opened a new valve technology center in Finland Sept. 22 that will serve growing markets in the Middle East and China.
The office building and plant will house 800 automation professionals. Building a new facility in Finland is in line with Metso's investment decisions of previous years to develop Metso's valve services globally, the company said. In 2010, Metso opened a facility in Shanghai, China, and is currently expanding its valve production premises in the United States.
The new Helsinki facility should help Metso improve product-development possibilities, the company said. For example, there is a new flow laboratory for valve testing and a new expanded cryogenic testing facility for the LNG industry.
