Groupe Bathily initiated discussions with Metso Outotec to find a solution that would meet their needs. Stephane Perret-Matray, who works in Metso Outotec’s Distribution Management Office, responsible for the aggregates equipment sales in the region, promoted Metso Outotec’s Nordplant™ solution and the possibility of financing over several years. For many aggregate producers and quarrying companies, investing in new equipment isn’t possible without financing. Nordplant is a stationary plant solution that is based on a selection of standardized modules.
When customer financing is requested, experts from Metso Outotec’s finance and sales teams work together to create the best possible solution for the customer. For Groupe Bathily, Contract and Trade Finance Manager Boris Voisot from Metso Outotec in France started to arrange a supplier credit scheme that was adequate for the value of the sale and with a suitable financing period, which in this case was five years. The financing was arranged with Bpifrance Assurance Export, the French export credit agency, acting under the name, on behalf and under the control of the French State.
