Metso has today successfully completed its acquisition of the valve automation division of India based Rotex Manufacturers and Engineers Private Limited (RMEPL), by acquiring all of the shares in RMEBS Controls Private Limited (RMEBS).
The acquisition complements Metso’s actuation and valve automation offering and enables a full range of actuators for all major valve markets and a broader offering of limit switches for various applications. It also introduces new products to Metso's process valve portfolio for the oil and gas, pulp and paper, mining, water treatment and other process industries.
“This move increases our presence in attractive new industries and application areas. The capabilities and technological solutions coming from Rotex fit seamlessly into Metso's offering and strengthen our global valve network. We are naturally excited to welcome the new colleagues who will be joining Metso, and we are looking forward to serving our customers globally,” says John Quinlivan, President, Valves business area, Metso.
