Metso Outotec and Hispano Japonesa de Maquinaria S.L. (HJM) have agreed on an expansion of their distribution contract in Spain. In addition to mobile equipment, with the new scope the cooperation also covers Metso Outotec’s stationary crushing and vibrating equipment, crusher wear parts and spare parts, as well as service contracts, commissioning, and technical support. The contract comes into effect in July 2021.
“We have been very pleased with the cooperation with HJM so far,” comments Olli-Pekka Oksanen, who is heading the Distribution Management Office in Metso Outotec. “HJM is well-known and recognized in the Spanish construction business. Thanks to their solid expertise and local presence, we are able to strengthen the service levels for all our crushing and screening customers both in equipment and aftermarket support.”
To ensure continuity for the customers, part of the Metso Outotec personnel will transfer to HJM with the transaction. Olli-Pekka Oksanen continues: “Our foremost objective is to ensure a smooth transition to the existing customers.”
“The past two years which we have represented Metso Outotec’s mobile equipment has proven that our visions are very well aligned,” says Juan Rodríguez, Managing Director at HJM. “Customers know what Metso Outotec solutions are and what they can do. They also know what kind of committed support is needed to keep the highest performance as standard, and that we at HJM put all in for the highest excellence. Together we want to be the preferred choice for all crushing and screening customers in Spain.
