"I am very excited to enter the new stage of Vadodara and Metso Outotec's investment with this expansion. We decided two years ago to consolidate certain engineering capabilities to Vadodara. Now, with the new purpose-built facility, we are ready for the rapid expansion of our support to our customers and answer to their growing needs around the world," says Sami Takaluoma, president of Metso Outotec's Services business area. 

Combining the engineering expertise for equipment to support various products in one location better serves customers. It enables cross-functional best practices and knowledge sharing across the different functions. 

"We have already found many qualified and experienced candidates to join us. The quality of education in India is very good. As a global company, we can offer broad career opportunities for individuals to progress and experience being part of some of our key operations. We will put a special focus on having a supportive and engaging working culture where everyone can develop and reach their full potential," Takaluoma continues. 

In addition to the new engineering centre in Gujarat state, Metso Outotec has two foundries in Vadodara and Ahmedabad, producing high-quality consumables and spare parts. The foundries employ around 700 persons.
