What’s in a Name?

You may have already heard the news, but on October 1, 2013 the Extraordinary General Meeting approved the demerger of the Metso and Valmet companies, which will be completed by January 2014. So what does this mean for all of our customers who rely on our trusted products and services? Rest assured, our commitment to quality, innovation, and customer service has not and will never change. Valmet’s focus will be on the development and supply of competitive technologies through the entire life cycle for the pulp and paper and power generation industries. Although our name and logo has changed, the same experienced, knowledgeable, and responsive employees are here to answer your call.

To increase Valmet’s customer service even more, we will bolster our organizations in our five main geographic areas: North America, South America, EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa), Asia-Pacific, and China. We will continue to focus on producing the most developed and innovative technology for Pulp, Energy, and Paper services. You may have already noticed our new visual identity, which will be familiar to those who have used the myriad of Metso’s services and products. The Valmet logo is a green arrow emblem pointing forward as a representation of our goals and promise to our customers to always promote their success and development in our joint endeavors. We hope you will join our new company in our vision of excellence to move forward into the future of pulp, paper, and energy.
