Sandvik Beat the Blues With International Customer Event

Sandvik Mining and Construction have held a highly successful four day customer event June 23-26, 2009, at Sandvik’s Swadlincote factory, the Belfry Hotel, and with live machinery demonstrations at Armac’s recycling center near Birmingham airport.

The major aims of the customer event were to formally mark the integration, and rebranding, of the Extec and Fintec products lines as part of Sandvik’s product offering, and to publicize the new global center of excellence that has recently been created at the former Extec factory in Swadlincote.

In the spring of 2007 Sandvik acquired Extec Screens and Crushers Ltd, and Fintec Crushing and Screening Ltd. As leaders in the design and manufacture of mobile crushing and screening equipment, Extec and Fintec complements Sandvik’s customer offering with mid-size and light equipment, thereby positioning Sandvik as a market leading supplier in a rapidly growing industry.

Sandvik has chosen to unify its mobile crusher and screen range under a single brand, this being signified by new model nomenclature, and machine colors, and has been given its worldwide launch at the global customer event.
As part of the activities attendees were treated to live demonstrations, seminars, presentations and a tour of the Swadlincote Global Centre of Excellence, the Aftermarket division, and Global customer support centre.

The event was not limited solely to mobile crushing and screening, as a major purpose was to highlight exactly what Sandvik offers to all its customers. “Sandvik offers a full range encompassing drill rigs, tools, breakers, static plants that possess direct applications to companies of all sizes that are involved in quarrying, construction, demolition, recycling, surface mining. These products also possess attributes that are suited to the contractor segment. The mobile screening and crushing division now allows our customers to enjoy a one-stop shop, so that we can truly be the solutions partner of choice for all our customers, worldwide,” said Anders Kjelberg, vice president of Business Development.

The special nature of the occasion was used to mark the worldwide launch of a brand new product – the QE440 tracked scalping and screening system. The QE440 has been developed in order to deal with real operating requirements, which traditional screening solutions are unable to adequately cater for. Its impressive screening area, yet robust construction, makes it ideal for serious producers of aggregates, whether comprising secondary or virgin materials.

Following on from the demonstrations visitors were then taken to Sandvik’s Swadlincote factory. The old Extec HQ is now not only Sandvik’s global center of excellence for mobile crushing and screening, but also the centre for Mining and Construction within the UK and Ireland.

The Sandvik customer event highlighted Sandvik’s commitment to its newly acquired companies, and demonstrated the product range to customers who may have lacked familiarity with many items in the Sandvik portfolio. The entire product range is now able to provide high quality customer focused solutions to all players across a wide market area.
