Metso has bolstered its dealer network ahead of showcasing new innovations at one of the world’s largest construction materials trade events.
The minerals processing equipment manufacturer has announced LSW Wear Parts will join its aggregates distributor community as of 1 January to service Metso customers across eastern Canada.
Incorporated in 1993, LSW is a second generation, family-owned and operated business. The company has expanded to become a major supplier of aftermarket parts to the mining, construction, forestry and energy industries.
In order to better accommodate future Metso customers, LSW will also open a new bend and band facility this year. The distributor has two current locations in Fredericton, New Brunswick, and Truro, Nova Scotia.
Metso’s vice president of service sales in Canada Jean Hebert said the partnership is expected to strengthen Metso’s screen media, lining, and conveyor accessories distribution.
“We have found in LSW a solid partner with a customer service focus. We know that partnering with them will provide customers with added value screening solutions.’’
New tech unveiled
Metso will be a major exhibitor at this year’s CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 conference, one of the largest shows in the aggregates industry, to be held in Las Vegas from 10 to 14 March.
This year, the company will tailor its show for small- to mid-sized quarrying and general contractors.
Previously launched at the 2017 show, Metso will feature its MX Multi-Action cone crushing technology, which has been well received by quarry operators around the world, with close to 100 units sold so far.
Specifically, the new MX3 crusher will be on display, alongside a special Lokotrack mobile crushing plant equipped with an MX4 crusher.
The new Lokotrack ST4.10 mobile screen is a high capacity screening plant for quarrying, which further adds to Metso’s range of hybrid equipment.
Finally, Metso will introduce the Nordtrack product family with purpose-designed and field-proven features for general contractors and small to medium capacity aggregate producers.
The new Nordtrack range includes track-mounted crushers and screens as well as track-mounted and wheel-mounted stacker conveyors ideal for recycling, demolition and small quarries.
