Weir Minerals open new base in Finland

New service centre to provide increased support to growing customer base across Scandinavia

WEIR Minerals have launched their first servicing base in Finland to provide increased support to their growing customer base across Scandinavia.

The business has supplied pumps and other process equipment to the mining and aggregates sectors across Scandinavia for 20 years and the new base will allow it to offer an improved level of service to its customers. Strategically located in Keminmaa, Weir Minerals’ service engineers will now be able to reach customers’ sites in the vicinity much more quickly.

A permanent team of Weir Minerals technicians will be based at the centre so that repair and maintenance work can be carried out, minimizing turnaround times for support services. Stock will also be kept at the location, allowing commonly ordered smaller items to be delivered rapidly to customer locations.

The opening of the new centre follows Weir Minerals’ recent acquisition of Swedish service business Gema – which specializes in servicing mines in northern Sweden – as part of the company’s plans to bolster its presence in Scandinavia.

Tony G. Locke, managing director of Weir Minerals Europe, said: ‘With its established and growing mineral-extraction industries, Scandinavia is a key European mining location. Through our new service centre, we will be able to provide timely and critical support services to mines across the Finnish-Swedish border regions.’
