HighService Service offers its customers a variety of services from maintenance to commissioning and remote monitoring. The company has approximately 1,000 employees and it operates in Chile, Argentina and Brazil.
"This acquisition expands our service offering in the Chilean and Pacific Rim mining markets and supports Metso's growth strategy. It brings us more service experts to support our customers in the region and we are happy to welcome our new colleagues to Metso," says Mikko Keto, president of Metso's Minerals Services and Pumps business areas.
The acquisition was announced in January 2019 and was approved by the Chilean competition authority in March.
