A knowledge provider
At Sandvik Coromant, we are always aware of the footprints we—and our industry—leave behind. Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important to our organization, and we always strive to work toward a more sustainable future on both a global and a local level.
Sandvik Coromant is involved with a number of educational institutions and organizations across the globe to continue the advancement of industry knowledge and education. One example is the Wilhelm Haglunds Gymnasium, a technical upper secondary school in Gimo, Sweden that provides students with three years of technical education within disciplines such as engineering, IT and research and development. Another is the Sandvik Coromant Centre for Machinist Technology, which opened at the Canadian Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in 2008. This facility increased the school’s capacity for training machinist apprentices. Sandvik Coromant is also engaged in various R&D projects at the Swedish Chalmers University of Technology Materials and Manufacturing Technology and Applied Mechanics, in addition to providing an extensive e-learning program.
We believe in partnerships and sharing expertise and knowledge, and we have collaborations with our customers and partners in industries such as automotive and aerospace in all markets. Sandvik Coromant is a member of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) in the UK, working with the center’s partners: Boeing, Rolls-Royce and the University of Sheffield. Sandvik Coromant has also partnered with the Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing as one of its originating industry members as well as the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology and the Manufacturing Technology Center in the United States.
