Case Boral: Boral chooses Metso Lokotrack LT160 to help build Sydney's future
Rigorous research into finding a crusher that could handle the planned production volume at the Peppertree plant, situated around 180 kilometers south west of Sydney, led Boral to select Metso’s Lokotrack LT160 together with the company’s patented Lokolink mobile conveyor system.
Weighing in at an amazing 285 tonnes and measuring 12 meters high by 25 meters in length, the Lokotrack LT160 at Peppertree is the largest mobile crusher in the southern hemisphere. Extensive design consultation between Boral’s technical staff and Metso’s design team prior to design finalization and manufacture has produced the most sophisticated machine of its kind, with a number of innovations not seen on a mobile machine before.
Our businesses at a glance
We have two reporting segments: Mining and Construction, consisting of Minerals Processing Solutions, Crushing and Screening Equipment and Services business lines, Automation, consisting of Process Automation Systems, Flow Control and Services business lines.
Metso was created through the merger of Valmet and Rauma in 1999. Valmet at that time was a paper and board machine supplier, while Rauma’s operations were focused on fiber technology, rock crushing and flow control solutions. The merger produced an equipment supplier serving the global process industry. Soon after the merger, Metso Corporation started to build its mining offering by acquiring Svedala Industri AB. Following an active acquisition and organic growth strategy, Metso soon became one of the world’s leading process industry suppliers.
2013 marked a special turning point in Metso’s history when the decision was made to split the company into two listed, independent entities: Metso Corporation and Valmet Corporation. The latter continues the history of Valmet by serving industries that use bio-based raw materials. Metso focuses on intelligent solutions and services for the mining, construction, and oil and gas industries. Metso also continues to provide leading process automation and flow control solutions and services for the pulp, paper and power generation industries as well as selected other industries.
Our core customer industries are mining, construction, and oil and gas. We have a strong global or niche market position in all of these. In Automation we also continue to serve the pulp, paper and power generation industries.
Our aim is to strengthen and expand our leading market positions in our core businesses in order to achieve faster-than-market growth and improved profitability. The unique combination of equipment, services and intelligence in our existing offering can deliver customer value propositions that improve customers' operational efficiency, safety, sustainability and cost effectiveness over the life cycle. These elements can be supplied to our customers through our standard or value-based business models, either as stand-alone offerings or as different types of combinations.
Our strategic ambition is to become the leading process performance provider for our customers to enable them to achieve sustainable process improvements. Our capabilities and our market-leading businesses and technologies put us in a unique position to realize this ambition. The core of this strategy as an intelligent processes and services company is based on the ability to create significant and sustainable customer value by combining and integrating our core equipment, services and intelligence. The Metso advantage is based on owning products, services, skills and technologies that are robust and market-tested also on a stand-alone basis.
