With the merger between Valmet and Neles into Valmet, the new company will be a “leading company with a unique offering for process industries globally with illustrative combined net sales for 2020 of approximately EUR 4.3 billion. In addition, it will have a globally balanced expert organization of 17,000 professionals”, according to Valmet.
Valmet President and CEO, Mr. Pasi Laine, commented that “we can now start our journey together as a stronger Valmet. I warmly welcome our new Flow Control business line colleagues (formerly Neles, ed) to the team. Valmet now has a unique, even stronger offering for global process industries and a solid platform for further business growth especially in automation systems and flow control solutions.”
“From the beginning of the merger process, we have had a strong view on the excellent long-term value potential to the shareholders, the industrial logic and synergy potential”, Mr Laine continues. “With our team of 17,000 professionals around the world we will now work together in realizing these targets. I want to also thank all the people who have worked hard in the merger process and integration planning. It is also important to acknowledge that without the excellent work done in Valmet and Neles during the past years, this merger would not have been possible. We now have a good foundation to develop Valmet forward, together.”
