Metal cutting company Sandvik Coromant, Sandviken, Sweden, has opened three new European Sandvik Coromant Centers: Milan, Italy; Istanbul, Turkey and Renningen, Germany. At the centres, customers can work with Sandvik Coromant experts – including manufacturing specialists, process engineers and CAM programmers – to develop new methods of overcoming their machining challenges. Also offered are training programmes, giving customers the opportunity for hands-on machine experience and to receive advice from skilled staff.

While each facility has a physical location, the new centres have also been built with digital adaptability in mind. The COVID-19 pandemic introduced a new remote working paradigm, with research conducted by Mckinsey finding that 38% of respondents expect their remote employees to work two or more days a week away from the office after the pandemic, compared to 22% of respondents surveyed before the pandemic.

In response to this shift, the new Sandvik Coromant Centers will also act as hubs for virtual training and events.

“By investing in three new Sandvik Coromant Centers, the goal is not only to innovate, but to build on the success of existing locations and foster cross-centre collaboration,” stated Helen Blomqvist, president of Sandvik Coromant. “These investments are natural parts of Sandvik Coromant’s focus on growth throughout the complete manufacturing value chain, by expanding our offer, as well as reach. This is always done with our customers in mind, and our expansion and investments are part of our journey to delivering enhanced machining solutions with an end-to-end impact.”

“Opening new Sandvik Coromant Centers is an important part of our strategy, to offer an exclusive experience that supports customers physically and digitally. We know that a small investment in improving your staff’s metal cutting skills can make a big difference to a company’s productivity, and it takes more than the right tool to make these gains. Customers can come to Sandvik Coromant with a challenge, and leave with a solution.”

There are currently seventeen Sandvik Coromant Centers located across Europe, the Americas and Asia. Later this year, Sandvik Coromant intends to open another centre, located in Mebane, North Carolina, USA.
