Göran Fredrik Göransson founded Sandvik in 1862. He was the first in the world to succeed in using the Bessemer method for industrial scale steel production in order to meet growing demands.

Göran Fredrik Göransson established two basic values that Sandvik still believe in today: constant technological development and close contact with the customers.

The company’s heritage is steel, but the real history of Sandvik Coromant begins in 1942 when Wilhelm Haglund was assigned the job as manager for a new production unit for cemented carbide tools in Sandviken, Sweden. Who knew that 70-years later their tools would be used all over the world in the manufacturing of as diverse products as aeroplanes, smart phones and beverage cans?

Sandvik Coromant has 8,000 employees and is represented in 130 countries. The company is part of the business area Sandvik Machining Solutions within the global industrial group Sandvik.
