Sandvik consolidates to three business areas and identifies non-strategic operations

Sandvik reorganises its operations in business area Sandvik Venture. This includes:

  • moving Wolfram (Wolfram Bergbau und Hütten) and two selected production sites from Sandvik Hyperion into Sandvik Machining Solutions
    These businesses are internal suppliers to Sandvik Machining Solutions. Wolfram supplies raw material through virgin material from the mine, through its recycling operations as well as from third party suppliers. The selected production sites in Sandvik Hyperion supplies metal powder and develops round tool blanks.

  • moving Sandvik Drilling and Completions (Varel) into Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology
    The product offering comprises consumables - drill bits and down-the-hole products - to the oil & gas and mining industries. Drill bit products have the equivalent business logic as the consumable offering in Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology, in being an important driver for customer productivity.

  • Sandvik Process Systems and Sandvik Hyperion, excluding the two sites to be merged into
    Sandvik Machining Solutions, are identified as non-strategic operations and will remain in
    Sandvik Venture, now to be labeled other operations

    Over time, Sandvik has the ambition to exit from these businesses, although the process is yet to be initiated.


“By consolidating operations we will achieve total ownership and accountability for the respective businesses, aiming to improve the long term efficiency in Sandvik. For Sandvik Machining Solutions the structural change is driven by achieving total ownership of the supply chain and strengthening the position in the round tools segment. For Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology we consolidate the similar product offering of Rock Tools and Drilling and Completions under the same umbrella. Over time we will exit from the businesses now reported in other operations, making Sandvik even more focused on its core businesses, says Björn Rosengren, Sandvik’s President and CEO.

The new structure will be effective as of 1 July 2016. Sandvik Venture business area and management team will hence be dissolved. Björn Rosengren, Sandvik’s President and CEO will have the formal responsibility for other operations, while the responsibility for further development of the business will remain with the respective product area management teams. Jim Nixon, current President of Sandvik Venture will leave Sandvik as of 1 July 2016.

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank Jim Nixon for his dedicated work in supporting the merger of the new organization. I wish him all the best in his future career”, says Björn Rosengren.
