To respond to the growing global demand for reliable valve technology, Metso Corp. (Helsinki, Finland; www.metso.com) has decided to build a new green-field global valve technology center in Chungju, South Korea. The investment will strengthen Metso's control valve and service capabilities for customers in the oil-and-gas and power industries, both locally and globally. The new facility will be ready to begin global deliveries in September 2014.
In addition to manufacturing, the new center will feature state-of-the-art control valve testing facilities and engineering services to ensure flexible and timely deliveries worldwide. The new center will also house research and development, engineering, and service support units for South Korean EPC companies, which play a major role in many projects worldwide.
