The innovative technologies and the digital inspection method of Global Physical Asset Management are patented and fully complementary to Metso Outotec’s current service offering for grinding. This will bring more value to customers and support them in achieving reliable plant performance. The acquired technology enables 60% faster gear inspections with outstanding accuracy when compared to the use of conventional methods.

“I am very pleased about this important step toward our strategic target to become the preferred services provider in our industry. The unique technology and digital inspection method fit excellently with our services strategy and grinding offering and will also bring potential to further develop our inspection capabilities for our crushing solutions. I warmly welcome our new colleagues to the Metso Outotec team,” says Sami Takaluoma, President, Services business area at Metso Outotec.

Metso Outotec has experience from designing, manufacturing and supplying over 8000 grinding mills globally, including the manufacturing and supply of the largest SAG/AG mills in the world. With the acquisition of Global Physical Asset Management, Metso Outotec can leverage the strength of its extensive installed base and field service network and increase its capabilities to serve the third-party installed base.

Co-founders, Tom and Jason Shumka, say: “We are excited that we are now a part of a truly international company. Tom has expanded Global PAM’s markets by building strong relationships with customers and working with them to build efficient and reliable strategies that apply the latest innovative technologies. Jason has developed unique technologies for years, helping our customers achieve significant benefits. As we become a part of Metso Outotec, our innovative solutions, which we are very proud of, will become available for customers globally”.
