Lutze takes over service section from Metso

On 3rd September, it became official: The management of Metso Corporation in Helsinki and Lutze-Group based in Einbeck have entered an agreement that re-assigns service responsibilities for conveyor belt technologies and wear protection in various European countries. According to the contract, Lutze takes over the complete service section for these product lines from Metso, including the relevant locations in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. Further Metso locations in Norway and Sweden will also join LutzeGroup.

“We already maintain 7 locations in Germany to successfully support our customers’ businesses. In order to achieve a healthy international growth, there was no better time for this decision,” managing director Heinz Lutze explained his investment into the future.

Lutze will add established Metso products to its portfolio, thereby enlarging the service range it can offer. All Metso service personnel at the affected locations will be kept on board. “We can’t afford to lose good and experienced staff,” Lutze said in another statement. The entrepreneur shows optimism with regards to further developing the acquired locations.
For more than 50 years, Lutze – Group has been a provider of its very own range of products and services for conveyor belt solutions. Its divisions for polyurethane processing and spray coat wear protection are also considered vital sections within the group that have set their innovative mark beyond the industry’s limits.
