Metso has acquired US-based mining services provider Copperstate Industrial Services for an undisclosed amount.

With the acquisition, Copperstate’s team will be intergrated into the services business line of Metso’s mining and construction technology segment.

The team will be expanded to strengthen Metso’s maintenance, repair and retrofit business in the US, Canada and Mexico.

Metso senior vice-president of engineered services solutions Randy Reisinger said that the firm’s objective is to enhance customer satisfaction by employing a larger faction of knowledgeable, well-trained service people to meet customers’ skills and availability needs.
