The acquisition of BTI is set to expand Sandvik’s presence in the North American market and strengthen its regional capabilities in the component manufacturing value chain. In 2022, the company generated approximately SEK 333 million in revenue.
BTI will be reported under the business area segment Sandvik Machining Solutions (SMS).
