Metso Paper Ltd. has contracted Usinage Bertrem of Sorel, Que., to be an authorized Canadian service centre for roll repairs.

The agreement will complement Metso’s current services to the pulp industry in North America, and is in line with Metso’s strategy to increase its level of business in the services sector. Usinage Bertrem is owned by Pierre Cardin, an ex-Beloit employee with more than 30 years of experience in paper machine and roll manufacturing. Cardin was a key player in establishing Beloit Manhattan’s roll service shop in Renfrew, Ontario.

In Sorel, Usinage Bertrem operates a 22,000 sq. ft. workshop. The services offered at this location will mainly focus on mechanical roll repairs, but because of existing links to the other Metso roll repair and covering facilities in the U.S., this location will act as a true one-stop roll service centre.
