Comment Print
Helsinki, Finland, 07 July 2010 -- Metso and Myllykoski’s MD Plattling mill have signed a frame agreement for the maintenance operations at MD Plattling paper mill in Plattling, Germany. The multi-year agreement will become effective as of 01 January 2011.

According to the frame agreement, MD Plattling will outsource the maintenance of their two light-weight coated paper making lines to Metso. The mill’s maintenance personnel, amounting to approximately 70 persons, will then work for Metso.

Metso already is responsible for the maintenance of the SC-paper line, belonging to Plattling Papier, an alliance partner of Myllykoski. The SC-paper line had its start-up in December 2007 and is located at the same mill site as MD Plattling. The considerable extension of Metso’s maintenance responsibility at the Plattling mill site is a sign of the customer’s trust in Metso and its maintenance concept.

“The choice of the partner was made based on the proven and fair cooperation and the positive experiences we have had,” said Caius Murtola, general manager of Plattling. For Metso, the agreement with MD Plattling is a very important maintenance outsourcing reference and a milestone in developing the service business, one of the cornerstones of the company’s strategy.

MD Plattling is a company of the Myllykoski Group. Plattling Papier is part of Myllykoski’s alliance partner Rhein Papier GmbH. Myllykoski is a family-owned international paper group with manufacturing in Finland, Germany, and the United States. Myllykoski is among the largest publication paper producers in the world, operating seven paper mills with a total annual capacity of close to 3 million metric tons and employing 2700 people.

Metso (www.metso.com) is a global supplier of sustainable technology and services for mining, construction, power generation, automation, recycling and the pulp and paper industries. The company has about 27,000 employees in more than 50 countries.
