Nadine Crauwels has been appointed as a member of the Sandvik’s executive management board.

Crauwels has been president of Sandvik Coromant since 2017 and held several different management positions within the company since 2000.

According to Sandvik, the appointment is a result of an upcoming organizational change within Sandvik Machining Solutions, where Crauwels Crauwels will be heading a new business area segment consisting of the Sandvik Coromant, Seco Tools, Walter, Dormer Pramet and Wolfram. The segment will reportedly be renamed Sandvik Machining Solutions.

A second business area segment will also be formed within the business area, consisting of Applied Manufacturing Technologies and Additive Manufacturing, the company said. This segment will be called Sandvik Manufacturing Solutions and will be led by Lars Bergström until the end of 2020, after which Sandvik's president and CEO Stefan Widing will take on the role.

 ‘I am happy and proud to take on the role as head of the newly formed business area segment and I look forward to further building on the unique strengths we have in our various divisions,’ says Nadine Crauwels.

‘The new organization aims to further increase focus on the growth opportunities within both our core area of ??metal cutting and within adjacent areas such as software solutions and services for the wider component manufacturing industry,’ said Stefan Widing.
