Brings fabric production closer to customers.

Metso has opened an extension to its Tianjin service center that manufactures forming, dryer and filter fabrics mainly for the Chinese and Asia-Pacific market. The Tianjin service center, located in the city of Tianjin, China, started with 45 employees in 2008 and today it employs 200 service professionals. An inauguration ceremony of the extension of the center was held in Tianjin on May 8, 2013.

A new heat setting machine for fabrics manufacture and an expansion of laboratory facilities were included in the extension. Metso has in addition concentrated all fabrics production to Tianjin by moving its Shanghai filter fabrics operations to Tianjin.

“This extension is in line with Metso’s strategy for services growth and brings fabrics production closer to customers in Asia”, says Jukka Tiitinen, president, services business line, pulp, paper and power, Metso.

Strengthening local services is a vital part of Metso’s continuing commitment to the pulp, paper and power industries says the company. Metso currently has a network of 100 service locations serving these industries around the world and has steadily increased its local presence in China, where the company has been present for 80 years.
