Metso Outotec has updated the global extractive industry on the progress of its Nordtrack range of mobile crushers and screens, including announcing the addition of two machines to the line-up.
In a virtual launch on the company’s new Liveroom platform on 17 March, Metso Outotec product experts introduced two new product to the already 17-strong Nordtrack range: the S2.5 mobile screen – a small and versatile scalping screen with plenty of applications – and the Nordtrack I908, suited to small material reduction job sites.
The I908 is a revamp of the earlier released I908S, which has been one of Metso Outotec’s best-selling products in Europe.
The head of the Nordtrack product Vesa Tuloisela said the company has to date been very happy with the release of the range.
“I am very pleased to say that the Nordtrack range has been extremely well received by our customers,” said Tuloisela.
“It has proven to be a flexible solution meeting different requirements. Nordtrack sales have been developing very well, despite the pandemic. In fact, we have exceeded sales targets in some areas.
“The Nordtrack journey started 18 months ago. The first year has been a great success with over 200 units delivered in this difficult environment where the construction segment, among others, has been struggling.”
Tuloisela outlined the global reach of Metso Outotec and said Australia has now become a welcome customer of the Nordtrack range.
“Germany bought over 50 units, while initial units made their way to central and south America,” Tuloisela said.
“South Africa has been enjoying their first units for one year already, while the same goes for Australia.”
Through its operations, Metso Outotec has also committed to reducing carbon emissions by meeting science-based targets of a maximum of 1.5°C global warming.
With a brand promise of being “the partner for positive change’, the company is encouraging its customers to collaborate on its vision of a clean-cut, trustworthy world of stress-free operation.
In line with such a vision, Tuloisela added that environmentally conscious consumers are target clients for the business.
“We want to grow our recycling customer base, offer attractive solutions for the rental business and for construction contractors globally,” Tuloisela said
Speaking on the use of a 360° Liveroom online presentation to launch the new additions to the Nordtrack range, vice president of global distribution Adrian Wood said the company was excited about innovating in their products and in their presentations.
“The pandemic forced us into a direction that may not have been otherwise considered. It’s one of the few things we are thankful for in the last year,” Wood said.
“We had also, in our research, identified small to mid-sized contractors as the target customer segment, but we really underestimated the products’ potential with all segments.
“Although it seems like only a few days have passed [since the Nordtrack range was launched], we are now at the 500-day mark and it’s safe to say that the project has been a huge success.”
The Metso Nordtrack range is available in Australia through Tutt Bryant Equipment.
The online launch is available to view in the Metso Liveroom.
The S4.9 is a high capacity mobile screen that is easy to transport and move between work sites.
