Metso says it is looking to better support the common customer interface and growth plans of its Pumps business area by moving it into its Minerals division.
Previously, Pumps was reported under the Flow Control segment together with Valves. Metso said it will continue to report externally under the two segments, Minerals and Flow Control, and will run its operations through seven business areas grouped under these two segments.
“The majority of Metso’s Pumps business area’s customers are common to the Minerals segment, and sales already largely operate through the Minerals market area structure,” Metso said. The Pumps business area will now be headed by Mikko Keto, who acts also as President of Metso’s Minerals Services business area, while John Quinlivan will continue as President of the Valves business area.
The change is effective immediately, with Pumps to be reported under the Minerals segment as of January 1.
