Metso continues developing the global production footprint in its Minerals Consumables business area by reviewing manufacturing capabilities in the EMEA region. As part of the initiative, Metso is starting personnel negotiations to review the implications at rubber and poly-met wear part production units in Ersmark and Trelleborg/Sweden.

 

The negotiations concern the potential closure of the factory in Ersmark and the restructuring of the manufacturing operation in Trelleborg. The negotiations affect manufacturing related functions, with approximately 150 positions. Metso’s other operations in Sweden are not in the scope of these negotiations.

 

“Our target is to utilize the full potential of the most efficient manufacturing methods and optimize sourcing opportunities and logistics. By developing our supply capabilities at the regional and global levels, we are actively responding to changes in the competitive environment, as well as improving our flexibility in fulfilling customers’ needs,” says Sami Takaluoma, President, Minerals Consumables business area.

 

The Ersmark and Trelleborg units produce rubber and poly-met wear parts used in the mining industry. Today, Metso is the leading player in the rubber and poly-met mill lining business, with a strong service network in all the main mining markets. In addition to Ersmark and Trelleborg, Metso operates nine factories manufacturing synthetic solutions globally.
