Mesa, AZ – Metso Minerals Industries, Inc. has announced it is relocating its industrial equipment repair and field service facility to southeast Mesa. This will be a multi-million dollar investment to construct the 44,000 square foot facility. The move will plan to create 40 new jobs.
“District 6 in Mesa has become the place for companies to call home, thanks to the convenience of the airport, highways and technology hubs. I am thrilled to welcome Metso to Mesa and look forward to them joining our large contingent of companies bringing jobs to the area,” District 6 Councilmember Scott Somers said.
