Metso is celebrating its 80-year presence in China this year. 2013 marks 80 years since one of Metso’s predecessors, AB Karlstads Mekaniska Werkstad, received an order for a paper machine from Guangzhou Paper in 1933. Over the past eight decades, Metso has risen to one of the top global suppliers of technology and services to China’s core process industries, including mining, construction, pulp and paper, power, and oil and gas.

"We are very pleased to be celebrating 80 years of business and partnerships in China with our 3,200 employees, more than 1,500 customers, and other stakeholders in China”. Our deep roots in the Chinese market, together with technology and comprehensive services and solutions, provide an excellent foundation for serving our customers and stakeholders. Helping our customers develop China’s infrastructure is one of the areas in which we have a lot to offer,” says Matti Kähkönen, Metso’s President and CEO.

On May 31st, Yu Zhengsheng, Chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, visited Metso’s facilities in Helsinki, Finland.
