Published June 28, 2000 00.00.00 +2 GMT

Valmet's recent acquisition of a portion of the assets of Beloit Corporation has greatly enhanced the company's service capability in the European market area. In connection with the acquisition of the former Beloit-Manhattan roll servicing operations in the U.S, Valmet also acquired the roll service specialist, PRC SA in Cernay, France. The company is now called Valmet Cernay SA.

The new Valmet Roll Service Center in Cernay can handle even the most demanding process rolls in its 8,530 m² roll service facility. The center is renowned for its roll covering expertise, featuring a full scope of materials – elastomers, polyurethane, composites and hard coatings, all processed with safe, environmentally conscious methods.

During the coming months, Valmet will continue to develop the center's capabilities to include also more advanced mechanical overhauls for full-scale roll servicing. The center employs 120 persons.

Valmet's other roll service centers in Central Europe are located in Pfungstadt, Germany, and in Como, Italy.
