Fair Lawn, NJ, 07410

Press release date: December 5, 2012

Fair Lawn, N.J. - Sandvik, a leading, global high technology engineering group, offering advanced products and services in cemented carbide and high speed steel cutting tools, materials technology, and mining and construction equipment; and its tooling division, Sandvik Coromant, the world's leading producer of tools for the metal cutting industry, broke ground Friday, Dec. 3, 2012, 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, a strategic geographical alignment dedicated to increasing synergies between the USA, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Latin America.

"We're proud to reaffirm our roots in New Jersey," said Johan Israelsson, president, Sandvik Coromant, Market Area Americas. "Superstorm Sandy dealt a blow to many in this state, but we're not going anywhere. Our new facility will keep Sandvik Coromant headquartered in the same community we've been in for 57 years."

The groundbreaking kicked off the construction of the 108,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art 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 Sandvik Coromant Productivity Center will have the capacity to help manufacturers maximize their metal cutting operations by offering a balance of theory-based training courses, technical seminars and hands-on machining demonstrations. In addition, the Productivity Center will be staffed with training specialists and machining experts that will educate customers in methods for improving efficiency and productivity in metal cutting.

Sandvik Coromant will also continue its commitment to aerospace with the new AAC at the facility. This state-of-the-art center will focus on projects for machining composite materials or in high temperature and titanium alloys for aero frame structural parts and engine components. The aim is to concentrate specifically on customers who are interested in readdressing their current processes.

A dedicated team of industry specialists will support the customer projects and training at the AAC, which will be fully equipped with the latest machines to develop the most productive processes for aerospace customers.

Both the Productivity Center and Aerospace Application Center will focus on helping American manufacturers maximize their productivity and profitability through understanding and application of the latest technologies in cutting tools, machine tools and machining processes.
