Metso's acquisition of McCloskey International, a Canadian mobile crushing and screening equipment manufacturer, has been successfully completed. With this acquisition, Metso expands its offering in the aggregates industry globally and strengthens its customer reach especially to the general contractor segment. The acquisition was completed on October 1, 2019.

"This acquisition is an excellent strategic fit for Metso, because it strengthens our aggregates business and balances our traditionally mining-focused Minerals portfolio. With McCloskey as part of Metso, we are also able to better take part in the attractive, long-term growth of the mobile equipment market within the aggregates industry," says Pekka Vauramo, Metso's President and CEO.

"This acquisition expands our offering to new customer segments and application areas. McCloskey's capabilities and technical solutions strengthen our ability to address diverse customer needs through complementary channels and offerings. We are confident that McCloskey will align well with Metso, and we are excited to welcome new colleagues to the Metso family," says Markku Simula, President of the Aggregates Equipment business area of Metso.

The acquisition was announced in June 2019. The acquisition was funded, as previously announced, by a EUR 300 million term loan, which was drawn in September. McCloskey will be reported in Metso's Minerals segment as of Q4 2019.

LOAD 60 TONS IN JUST FOUR PASSES WITH VOLVO

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.     

When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
