The Metso-McCloskey Deal

RR061319 mergersJune 13, 2019 – Big news in the world of crushing. As you probably have heard by now, Metso is acquiring McCloskey International. The deal supports Metso's expansion plans and the company will now be able to offer customers multiple complementary product lines. The deal also brings McCloskey greater international market presence. But is the deal an early precursor to an even larger merger possibilities? It certainly opened some eyes when in 2017 John Deere acquired Wirtgen, and with it the crushing capabilities of Kleemann. Could we see another heavy-iron manufacturer cut a deal to get in the crushing business? Don't count it out.
