Metso Outotec has revealed in a filing that it is considering a company name change at its upcoming annual meeting.
The company, which first said in July 2019 it would identify as Metso Outotec upon the close of Metso’s acquisition of Outotec the following year, said Feb. 17 that it is proposing changing its name to Metso Corporation.
The proposal was announced in accordance with the Limited Liability Companies Act, it said, on the grounds that the integration of Metso and Outotec, which became effective on July 1, 2020, is completed.
Also, it added, “the company’s current strategy focuses on growing a strong unified company that builds on the long history and legacy of its businesses to create significant customer value.”
The Annual General Meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday, May 3, at 2.00 p.m. local time at Messukeskus (Siipi entrance), Rautatieläisenkatu 3, 00520 Helsinki, Finland.
