Sandvik Mining and Construction is expanding its manufacturing of crushing equipment in Svedala, Sweden, and investing SEK300 million in a new production plant. The nearly 6,000 m2 production plant will be completed during early 2012. The plant will be fitted with the most modern production equipment for manufacturing key components for Sandvik’s crushers, which are assembled not only in Svedala, but also in other countries. The investment follows a decision earlier this year to also build a new distribution center in Svedala for spare parts for the European market. “Sandvik Mining and Construction has in recent years consolidated manufacturing to larger and highly efficient plants. In all locations in which we have manufacturing, it must be of worldclass. This applies to the highest degree to our facility in Svedala, where we also have our product development centre for crushing technology,” says Gert Sköld, CFO and Vice President, Sandvik Mining and Construction.
