In 2020, the annual turnover of the plant, owned by Metso Outotec, exceeded EUR 30 million.
According to Tomas Jaskelevičius, Executive at Arginta Engineering, this transaction will have a significant impact on the company’s development. “We have invested in and acquired a Finland-based plant with over 40 years of experience in manufacturing equipment and components for the minerals processing and metals refining industries.
