Metso delivers 100th truck body to Finland mine

Metso is marking a milestone: the delivery of its 100th truck body, with the crowning unit delivered recently to Boliden’s Kevitsa polymetallic mine in the Sodankylä region of Finland.

The supplier said its truck bodies belong to a portfolio of comprehensive payload management solutions for mining as well as aggregates for optimizing loading and hauling capability, minimizing environmental impact, and maximizing utilization of the loaders and haul truck bodies.

Metso’s range of payload management solutions was considerably expanded with the 2023 acquisition of Häggblom, a privately owned Finnish engineering and manufacturing company. The new comprehensive portfolio includes a range of truck bodies and buckets, each suitable for different operations and business objectives, ground engaging tools (GET), as well as long-lasting rubber and metallic truck bed liners, high-resistant wear parts, services and repairs.

“This expanded portfolio equips us with more mature capability to comprehensively address the holistic loading and hauling needs of customers and to support their sustainability and safety targets. This strategic shift allows us to take on the responsibility of managing customer assets and prioritizing service delivery over mere product transactions,” said Justin Ryan, vice president, Material Transportation business line.

The global rollout is being phased in. In the first phase, the comprehensive loading and hauling offering is available to customers in the Nordics and Europe, with Central and South America to follow soon after. In the second phase, global coverage to all markets is expected.

“The delivery of the 100th truck body is a significant milestone and shows that our customers trust us for their loading and hauling needs. As Metso is now able to provide complete solutions for all site conditions, we look forward to taking the next step as a value provider in payload management,” added Jukka Karhula, director, Loading and Hauling Solutions.
