Outotec opens office in Denver
Outotec Oyj (Espoo, Finland; www.outotec.com), a global minerals and metals processing service and technology provider, has openedf its Western U.S. office in Denver, Colorado.
Outotec's Canada based North America Market Area president, Marcus Horn, oversees the facilities now located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. "Denver was a sensible choice for us and for our customers," says Marcus. "We already had several remote team members located in the area, but wanted to bring a larger pool of experienced staff to the region to be closer to our customers and enhance our service levels."
The vision for the Denver office is to become a hub for customer service and technical support. Team members have been relocated from throughout North America, Australia and Finland to be in closer proximity to the majority of Outotec's U.S. based mining customers. In addition to hosting sales, service and project implementation teams, technical support experts in automation, flotation, and industrial water treatment are now calling the Denver office home. This team will grow in line with the growth in business in the region.
The facility will also serve as the Outotec Americas region Comminution technology center. The core team of grinding mill experts has moved from the Jacksonville, Florida location, which is now closed. In addition to the new Denver office, Outotec maintains its Energy Products technology center in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, its Coated Titanium Anodes technology center in Strongsville, Ohio, and its Iron Ore Beneficiation technology center in Jessup, Maryland.
The Denver facilities include a warehouse to support Outotec's growing spare parts sales. Outotec offers a complete range of spare parts solutions and life cycle services for Outotec minerals and metals processing equipment and plants, from genuine top quality OEM spare parts to long-term operation and maintenance agreements. The location is capable of housing critical spare parts within hours of an operation to greatly reduce the risk of client downtime while minimizing their supply chain costs.
