Leading sustainability technology provider Metso Outotec has changed its name to Metso Corporation, or simply Metso.
The name change comes after the company’s annual general meeting (AGM) on May 4, where the board of directors’ proposal to change the company name to Metso Corporation was approved.
The name change to Metso Corporation is effective as of May 4, and Metso said in a global sense, the change will be implemented in a phased manner.
In addition to the company name change, Metso Outotec’s executive team was renamed to Metso leadership team.
The visual identity of the company will remain unchanged, but the new name is reflected in the company’s logo.
Metso president and chief executive officer Pekka Vauramo said after the successful integration of Metso and Outotec, the company will focus on growing a strong unified Metso company.
“We have combined two valuable companies into one strong Metso,” Vauramo said.
“Our focus is clear: we continue enabling sustainable modern life and transforming the industry with a clear strategy and strong culture, supported by a name that is short yet established and well recognised among all our stakeholders. Services are an extremely important part of our business, requiring a strong name.”
The company said that Outotec will continue as a product brand and carries significant value as the name of some key technologies and products.
