Sandvik and its tooling division, Sandvik Coromant, broke ground December 3 last year on a location neighboring its current U.S. headquarters in Fair Lawn, N.J. The new facility will serve as Sandvik’s U.S. head office and a hub for Sandvik Coromant’s Market Area Americas, dedicated to increasing synergies between the USA, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Latin America.
The groundbreaking kicked off the construction of the 108,000-square-foot facility that will be designed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) standards. The contemporary “green” design, energy-efficient facility will provide general office space, a Productivity Center and an Aerospace Application Center (AAC).
Serving customers throughout the metalworking field within all major industries, the new Productivity Center will have the capacity to help manufacturers maximize their metalcutting operations by offering a balance of theory-based training courses, technical seminars and hands-on machining demonstrations.
