Metso expands Tianjin service centre

The Tianjin service centre, which started with 45 employees in 2008 and today employs 200, manufactures forming, dryer and filter fabrics mainly for the Chinese and Asia-Pacific market.

The extension includes a new heat setting machine for fabrics manufacture and an expansion of laboratory facilities. Metso has concentrated all fabric production in Tianjin by moving its Shanghai filter fabric operations to the extended facility.

“This extension is in line with Metso’s strategy for services growth and brings fabrics production closer to customers in Asia,” said Jukka Tiitinen, president of Metso's Pulp, Paper and Power Services business line.
