Finland: Metso plans to divide its Minerals Services division into two separate business areas: Minerals Services and Minerals Consumables. The heads of the business areas will report to Metso's president and chief executive officer (CEO) and they will be members of Metso's executive team.
The Minerals Services business area will consist of spare parts and service solutions as well as supporting distribution and repair centre infrastructures. The Minerals Consumables business area will consist of wear part businesses together with the foundries and other manufacturing operations as well as supply chain infrastructure.
