Metso opens distribution centre in Chile

Chile is home to Metso’s new state-of-the-art distribution centre

Metso has opened a new distribution centre in Vina del Mar, Chile, to further improve its delivery performance and customer service.

The new centre will replace the unit that served the area and will considerably increase Metso’s capability to deliver equipment, spare and wear parts and components, it says.

The inauguration ceremony was held on June 6, 2024.

“The new distribution centre has a significantly larger storage capacity than our previous warehouse and it will strengthen the availability of critical spare and wear parts close to our customers in Chile and other countries in South America,” Metso South American president Eduardo Nilo says.

The facility operates primarily on renewable energy and utilises sustainable packaging solutions, including returnable packaging and lighter plywood alternatives.

The distribution centre is located close to Metso operations in Concón, where the company has a modern rubber and Poly-Met factory and has implemented a unique recycling solution for its Megaliner, Poly-Met and rubber liners.

“An efficient and optimised distribution centre network will increase availability, improve customer service and decrease CO2 emissions,” Metso senior vice president global logistics operations Markku Eronen says.
