Valmet will build its fourth service center in China, in the city of Beihai, to further develop its local presence in the fast-growing pulp and paper industry in the Guangxi province. Valmet's new Guangxi Service Center will be in operation by the fourth quarter in 2023.
Valmet’s new service center will serve pulp, board, paper and tissue customers close by with main focus on roll maintenance, fiber equipment services and field services including shutdown planning management.
“Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region is a fast-growing area in China where we see our customers investing heavily, for example, in board and fiber lines. Being close to our customers is one of our core commitments. Establishing Guangxi Service Center is an important step to further strengthen our local presence. We will be able to serve our customers better than ever before,” says Aki Niemi, Business Line President, Services, Valmet.
“Our customers in Guangxi and the surrounding areas will strongly benefit from this new service center, which enables us to reduce the response and delivery times and have the needed expertise more easily available. Additionally, our customers will be closer to Valmet’s best technologies, products and services for maximized reliability and optimized performance,” says Xiangdong Zhu, Area President, China, Valmet.
In addition to this new Guangxi Service Center, Valmet has three other service centers in China – in Wuxi, Guangzhou and Zibo. In total, Valmet has over 100 service centers around the world.
