Sandvik confirms European distribution capability

Sandvik Coromant UK : 29 March, 2004  (Company News)
Sandvik Materials Technology is confirming and focusing its role as a stainless steel products distributor by opening a new European distribution centre at Venlo in Holland.
The 12500 square metre, purpose-built facility will be used to service distributors and end users in Beneleux and Germany. It will supply Sandvik's standard, commercial range of stainless steel tube, pipe, bar, hollow bar, fittings and flanges and a specialist range of electropolished tubes and fittings.

Sune Eriksson, Sandvik Material Technology's European Sales and Marketing Director says, 'This investment strengthens our role as a distributor and also supports our overall marketing strategy. Our supply of standard and special products to distributors and end users means that we can ensure a healthy product mix and a strong position in different market segments.'

The new centre is located in the south east of Holland, close to the German border and is due to open and be fully operational in Q2/2004.

It is anticipated that, when fully stocked, the new distribution centre will carry in excess of 2000 different products in seamless and welded tube and pipe, bar and hollow bar and around 5000 fittings and flanges. A full material processing capability has been installed for cutting, marking, destructive and non-destructive testing, bevelling and packing.

Gerald Kreischer, European Sales and Marketing Manager for tubular products adds, 'The new distribution centre will give our Benelux and German customers easy access to an extensive, stock product range, available in 24 - 48 hours when necessary - the original 'one stop shopping' on our customers' doorstep. Most products will be of Sandvik origin which gives customers the added assurance of controlled manufacturing quality from steel melt to the finished product. Complementary products from reputable suppliers will round off the product programme. As usual, the full technical support of Sandvik's R & D will be available.'
