Industrial heating specialist Sandvik says that its mining division has set up manufacturing capabilities in South Africa to build load and haul equipment close to its customers.

The facility will make the new low profile loader Sandvik LH115L for the African market.

‘We are creating knowledge transfer to set up the proven processes and systems that we already have in our other manufacturing locations around the world so that we can add other Sandvik products to this manufacturing site when needed,’ said Mats Eriksson, president for product area load and haul at Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology.
