Metso's automation business has been recognized by the Brazilian Pulp and Paper Technical Association (ABTCP) with the award of "Top supplier of automation for the pulp and paper industry". The voting phase included professionals from the sector and a strict technical evaluation of the candidates. The awards, regarded as the most prestigious in the pulp and paper segment in Brazil, have been organized by ABTCP for the past 12 years. This is the eighth consecutive year that Metso has won the automation category. The presentation ceremony will take place on Wednesday, October 9, in São Paulo.

"This award is granted to Metso in recognition of its commitment and investments on the technological development and services for the pulp and paper customers and its collaboration to the sustainable growth of Brazil", says Marcelo Motti, Metso Vice President for Automation in South America. "Metso solutions and services help to meet our customers' needs, improving production process efficiency and reducing raw material and energy consumption where resources are becoming limited, as well as meeting the increasing challenges in the operational cost chain."

Metso lays great emphasis on a strong presence in every region and country the company does business, investing in people and assets. Metso Service Centers throughout Brazil are a good example of this, allowing Metso to offer better service, be closer to its customers and facilitate the company integration into the local communities.

In 2013, one of the largest deliveries by Metso in South America was a contract for a new CMPC plant in Guaíba, in the South region of Brazil. The supply scope covers a cooking unit and fiber line, drying and baling machine, evaporation, recovery boiler, caustification and lime furnace, including a built-in automation solution and simulator for operational training in all process areas.

The Automation segment's process automation and flow control solutions meet the growing needs of Metso's customer industries to improve production process efficiency as raw materials and energy sources become scarcer and their costs increase. Our global network of service experts delivers business solutions to our customers that improve their productivity, lower risks and optimize costs.www.metso.com,www.twitter.com/metsoautomation
