A New Facility from the Old

Last month, PM traveled to Fair Lawn to celebrate Sandvik's grand opening of its new headquarters. What’s interesting is the new headquarters' facility was constructed on a portion of the original building footprint.

Well done, Sandvik! The $26 million redevelopment of the company’s headquarters in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, represents continued strong commitment to the U.S. market.

Back in 1955, Sandvik was one of the original businesses to invest in the newly developed Fair Lawn, New Jersey, industrial park. Since then, thousands of customers and employees have visited the facility.

Time marches on, and the original buildings aged. They aged to a point where something needed to be done. So new buildings were reconstructed and recently completed.

Last month, PM traveled to Fair Lawn to celebrate the company’s grand opening of its new headquarters. What’s interesting is the new headquarters facility was constructed on a portion of the original building footprint.

The new headquarters is a 100,000-square-foot facility that contains a combination of modern office space, modern equipped meeting rooms and a Productivity Center. It also houses an ITAR-certified Aerospace Application Center with machining capacity for customer training, engineering and process development.

For those of us who visited the old facility, this is a shining example of remodeling on steroids. They did a fabulous job—even adding a second floor where there was none. The next 60 years for Sandvik in the U.S. will begin in very nice digs.
