Quiet and clean production environment

The tools that are manufactured in Gimo are exported to customers all over the world, for the most technologically demanding processes imaginable. Our activities are divided into two plants, one for the inserts and one for the tool systems. Both of these are the biggest production plants in the world in their respective fields and in total the surface area of our premises amounts to 110,000 square metres. The manufacturing processes are highly automated, and the factory environment is totally quiet and clean. Security is tight and most of what happens is hidden from view, the sections where new solutions are developed being the most secret. 


On the way towards a green factory

We want to shape the future to create a sustainable place. This embraces the whole of what we do, and we have been working with various energy efficiency measures for a long time. Our recycling programme is extensive and most of our incoming material for production comes from recycled hard metal. This means that 70 per cent less energy is required than if they were manufactured from newly acquired raw materials. 

In 2018 we developed a tool of our own, Grön Fabrik (Green Factory & facilities), to establish how sustainable our factory is. The tool has a six-step scale and shows how the factory manages incoming resources, outgoing emissions and waste. It also assesses how the working environment, buildings, media, infrastructure and production function. Based on that, we are able to see what is required to move forward on the scale within each area.

Involvement with the community on a substantial scale

As the county’s largest private workplace, we want to contribute to creating a community that is as sustainable for people and the environment as it is for our business. In the autumn of 2018 Sandvik Coromant started a collaboration with UNICEF Sweden and Brynäs IF “A Good Start” initiative. Both work towards the long-term objective that all children should have a good start in life. All children are entitled to a safe upbringing – we feel very strongly about giving them the opportunity to follow their dreams, to develop and to be inspired to discover and research technology. Our collaboration with UNICEF Sweden and “A Good Start” enables us to contribute to that objective.
