As Metso continues to transform is mining business operations, the company has announced the closure of its York manufacturing plant, Pennsylvania, on 31 March 2016. Metso's other business operations operating out of the York offices will not be affected.
João Ney Colagrossi, President, Minerals business area, commented: “The mining industry is changing their business model to cope with the current market outlook. This is a permanent change in the mining industry and we need to find new and more efficient ways to run our business. After careful evaluation of our supply chain model, as well as the current and future workload, we did not see any other option than to close the York manufacturing plant. This is a very unpleasant but necessary action for us.”
An earlier initiative saw Metso close the manufacturing operations at the Lachine manufacturing plant in Quebec, Canada in 1H15.
