Valmet inaugurated its logistics center in the city of Araucária, in Paraná state in Brazil, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The center is Valmet's fifth logistics center globally and serves the pulp, paper, fiber board and other industries across South America with spare parts and components produced by Valmet and its local suppliers.
The new logistics center will help to secure the reliability and efficiency of customers' processes in South America by supplying the required spare parts and components from the same continent, saving on freight costs and cutting delivery times.
"We'll be delivering just-in-time services to our customers, and we will reduce their dependency on spare parts imports. In addition, our customers will not have to invest in inventories, as Valmet is prepared to take care of their inventory management," says Jukka Tiitinen, Business Line President of Services at Valmet.
Valmet is the leading global developer and supplier of process technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries.
