HELSINKI—Metso Corp. has now fully decided to discontinue operations at its manufacturing site in Trelleborg, Sweden, the Finnish group announced Jan. 10.
The decision follows union negotiations over plans to close the site, announced by the industrial products maker in November last year. A ramp-down of the operation will start in the second quarter of this year, with full closure expected in the third quarter, according to the statement.
Metso's facility in Trelleborg manufactures rubber parts for materials-handling applications, particularly in the mining industry. Metso currently employs 120 people in Trelleborg, including 68 in manufacturing-related positions who will be affected by the decision.
Once production ends at the site, Metso will have around 50 employees based in Trelleborg, working in product management, support functions and other global roles.
