The total Alwar production value is planned to grow by 30% from the current level, and global track mounted mobile machine capacity by 15%. Construction of the new factory facilities is planned to start in early 2022, and be completed by the end of the year.
The increased capacity in India will be used to manufacture McCloskey mobile and Lokotrack equipment, employing around 200 additional people. After the extension is completed, the Alwar factory will be one of the biggest manufacturing sites of Metso Outotec, employing approximately 800 people.
”This is another step in developing our domestic and export business in India. At the same time, we are also investing significantly in engineering and R&D resources in Alwar and making it one of our global engineering hubs,” says Markku Simula, president of the Aggregates business area of Metso Outotec.
