It will be Sandvik’s US head office and a centre 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," according to a press release.

“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 facility will incorporate the Sandvik Coromant Productivity Centre, which has been put together to help manufacturers improve their metal cutting operations by offering training courses, technical seminars and hands-on machining demonstrations. In addition, the Productivity Centre will have training specialists and machining experts on hand.

Sandvik Coromant will also continue to work for the aerospace market at the facility, focusing on projects for machining composite materials or at high temperatures, and titanium alloys for aero frame structural parts and engine components. The aim is to concentrate on customers who are interested in improving their current processes.
