As part of a global supply footprint development strategy in its Minerals Consumables business area, Metso is initiating consultations to evaluate the potential closure of other alternatives for its foundry operation in Isithebe, South Africa.

The Isithebe foundry produces metallic wear part castings for the mining and aggregates industries. The foundry has been part of Metso since 1998 and it has approximately 200 employees. In addition to Isithebe, Metso has five of its own foundries, located in Brazil, China, the Czech Republic, and India, and an extensive global network of external suppliers.

“Our strategy is to utilise synergies of the most efficient manufacturing and sourcing opportunities globally,” said Sami Takaluoma, President of the Minerals Consumables business area at Metso. “We are continuously developing our supply footprint to deliver the best value, availability, and quality for our customers.”
