April 20, 2017 - Valmet has opened its new regional office in Mexico City. An inauguration event was held at the Residence of the Ambassador of Finland in Mexico in February.

"We have worked diligently to earn the trust of our clients over these many years. What comes to the future of Valmet in Mexico, we feel there are many opportunities for us," said Dave King, Area President, North America, Valmet.
