Metso is addressing the growing demand for crushing and screening plants in the Indian market by expanding its production capabilities in Alwar. This latest investment increases Metso's crushing and screening plant production capacity in India by 35 %. By increasing capacity of the Metso Park factory in Alwar, Metso will improve the availability of its aggregate products in India as well as for export operations to Asia. The expansion will be completed by the end of 2018.
 
"Demand for aggregates crushing and screening equipment has been very strong, and India, with its rapidly developing infrastructure, is one of the fastest growing markets in aggregates," says Markku Simula, President, Aggregates Equipment business area at Metso. "With this investment, we want to ensure that we can meet our customers' growing needs both in terms of capacity as well as range of products available."
 
The Metso Park production facility started operations in 2012. Today, it is one of the largest of Metso's global production sites delivering a wide range of aggregate equipment from Nordwheeler, NW RapidTM and LokotrackTM crushing and screening plants with jaw, cone and impact crushers, as well Metso equipment for mining and process industries and a variety of service products.
In operation since 2012, Metso Park in Alwar is today one of the largest of Metso's global production sites, delivering a wide range of equipment and service products

"There is large-scale investment in road and commercial aggregate in India: during the next couple of years, for example, the road sector aims to increase road building to more than 40 kilometers a day. In addition, the demand for ballast required for railway projects is increasing, as well as the need for manufactured sand and classification of sand. Metso is supplying aggregate equipment and solutions for many of these megaprojects," says Kamal Pahuja, Vice President, Metso India.
 
Metso is investing in aggregates equipment production capabilities globally. In late January, a new high-speed assembly line for track-mounted crushing plants was commissioned in Tampere/Finland.
