Metso is a world-leading industrial company offering equipment and services for the sustainable processing and flow of natural resources. Metso is headquartered in Finland, and the company plays an important role also for the industry in Austria. On the 25th of April, an exciting company presentation evening was hosted by Metso Austria for the FINNCHAM network members and guests in Vienna-Erdberg.
After the welcoming words by Johannes Axnix, President of FINNCHAM Austria, the evening was officially opened by the welcome speech of Pirkko Hämäläinen, the Ambassador of Finland. Ambassador Hämäläinen has been in office since January 2019, and it was a great pleasure for FINNCHAM network members to meet her personally at the event.
Subsequently, there were highly interesting presentations about Metso and its products and services. Maria Panwinkler, Managing Director of Metso Austria, gave a comprehensive overview of the mission and history of the entire Metso Group, including highlights on the company’s strategic focus areas. Thomas Wagner, Regional Sales and Service Manager, presented Metso’s mineral business. Especially fascinating were the video demonstrations of the milling and processing equipment of waste from construction and industry. The last presentation was held by sales manager Max Wandl. The participants learned exciting details about the variety of industrial valves and their different uses.
After the presentations it was time for networking and snacks from a delicious buffet, and the evening continued with intensive discussions.
FINNCHAM Austria would like to thank Metso Austria for this great and informative event!
