The team will be integrated into the services line of Metso’s Mining & Construction Technology business. Copperstate was established in 1999 and operates in the American hard rock mining sector. Approximately 40 employees will transfer to Metso. The team will be expanded to reinforce Metso’s maintenance, repair and retrofit business in the USA, Canada and Mexico.
