The profile of the washing division has grown and evolved over the last five years, and the new brand and alignment are said to reflect a commitment to the future and to customers who seek leading-edge products and services to grow their business.

To position the brand for long term success within its market, MWS Equipment will operate as an independent business unit of Metso Outotec, extending the brand's reach in delivering world-class products and service globally.

The strategy is driven by a partnership with organisations around the world at a regional level that is best suited to deliver tailored solutions and ongoing service to our customers.

The new design and colour scheme reflects the brand's maturation and evolution as an industry leader for not only its product offerings but also the impressive network it has built over the past few years.

Ben Frettsome, product line manager, MWS Equipment, said: "I'm delighted with how our business has progressed in recent years. We have repositioned our route to market along with increasing our design and manufacturing capabilities. With the strength and depth in our leadership team, we are now aligning our brand to allow for the next chapter of our development and growth."

Fundamental to maintaining the reputation and trust the company has built within the industry, MWS Equipment's strategy is to partner with companies that have the expertise and specialised capabilities in application, installation, and aftermarket support of wet processing equipment to deliver not just a product but a long-term solution to the customer.

This continues to be driven by the design and engineering of smarter washing solutions that help customers build profitable and sustainable organisations.

Toni Laaksonen, senior vice president, McCloskey International, said: "The new brand identity is an exciting milestone. We continue to invest in our business by delivering industry-leading products and adding maximum value to our customer experience."

Ben Frettsome added: "We are delighted to announce our new identity. The rebranding of MWS has been in development for some time and will now allow for the business to partner with the best-suited organisations across the world.

"Looking ahead to 2021, we are very optimistic about the future of MWS Equipment and the strong position we are in going into 2021. We have an exciting list of product introductions and strong partnership announcements coming over the next few months."
