Metso opens new plant in Alwar, Rajasthan; Invests €2oo Mn
I would not solely focus on the investment related to the new plant expansion. Instead, consider our continuous investment over the past 15 years in our Alwar facility, which has involved expansions every two years. Over this 15-year period, our total investment in these facilities amounts to approximately 200 million euros. This facility is, from our perspective, our largest factory globally.
Metso to produce mobile track-mounted crushing & screening equipment in Alwar
In our new facility, we manufacture track-mounted crushers and screens. We have previously produced some of these machines in our Alwar facility for the Indian market. However, with this new factory, we have significantly increased our domestic production of track-mounted machines. We anticipate ongoing business growth in India, and having more domestic products offers new opportunities for expansion.
Currently, our facility covers an area of 340,000 square meters, which is sufficient for our needs at the moment. However, reflecting on our original investment in Alwar 15 years ago, we have already exceeded our initial plans multiple times. While we cannot predict the future, our current strategy focuses on optimizing our existing facilities. With this recent expansion, we believe there’s still much potential to harness from these facilities.
Metso bullish on India
I am optimistic about the growth prospects in the Indian market. I believe the market is expanding, and we have new products to offer to the domestic market.
Metso is fully committed to “Make in India”
Our involvement in the “Make in India” initiative began several years ago. We established our initial facility in 1996, and since then, we have consistently invested in this facility every year. In addition to this facility, we have two others in India located in Vadodara and Ahmedabad. India is an attractive destination for us, and Metso’s management is dedicated to making further investments in India, regardless of business cycles.
Metso: Keeping a competitive edge
We have the lowest overall cost throughout the machine’s lifespan. We deliver machines punctually, offer sustainable solutions, and provide some of the world’s leading technology, which is highly relevant for India. Given the ongoing infrastructure development in the country, our Metso offerings align closely with India’s infrastructure needs.
Metso growth target
One of our core values is having a strong ambition to consistently outperform the market in terms of growth. Currently, our global market share stands at approximately 10% to 15%. However, I aim for it to substantially increase in the future.
