In minerals processing and aggregate production, today’s top drivers are safety, productivity and cost efficiency. As raw materials and other resources become scarcer and plants look for new ways to be more efficient, Metso is developing its offering in intelligent processes and service solutions to help customers meet these challenges.
Metso has agreed to divest certain parts of its industrial rubber conveyor belt manufacturing and related sales and services operations in Northern Europe to Contitech and Lutze Group. The planned divestment is part of Metso’s strategy to develop and simplify its current production capacity in Europe.
Metso will acquire the lime kiln and recausticizing business of FLSmidth through an exclusive license to the technology concerned. The acquired business will be affiliated to Metso’s Pulp, Paper and Power segment, Fiber business line. The value of the transaction will not be disclosed.
More than twenty years ago Luck Stone Corporation, one of the largest family-owned and operated aggregates companies in the USA, embarked on a sequenced investigation to satisfy demand for a dry asphalt sand product that would avoid the environmental concerns inherent in wet systems. The solution also led them to applications for the production of their own design for dry engineered concrete sand.
