Metso to build new €150m production base in Finland

Staff reporter

Metso is investing €150 million in a new technology centre in Tampere, Finland.

The equipment manufacturer said its Lahdesjarvi centre would be used to design, test and manufacture aggregates and sand production technologies, equipment and components.

Work will start at the 23-hectare site next month.

The initial €150m investment over three years would deliver a 34,000sq.m facility expected to host track-mounted Lokotrack crushing plant production by the third quarter of 2027.

Metso said its current plan had crusher manufacturing, research activities, maintenance and administration moving from its existing century-old Hatanpaa site to Lahdesjarvi at a later stage, with the new centre expected to be fully completed by the mid-2030s.

“The goal of the Lokomotion project is to develop and build a new modern technology centre that will enable sustainable manufacturing operations,” Metso said.

“The centre will provide an environment and facilities to meet the most demanding sustainability and environmental objectives.”
