The next 150 years
Last year, Sandvik celebrated its 150th anniversary. Employees and shareholders around the world have celebrated with festivities, cakes and fireworks. During 2012, Sandvik also adopted a new strategy, received major new orders and invested in increased production capacity. Now, we are looking forward.
No one can foresee the future .Sandvik's journey has been an amazing one so far. Much about the company has changed beyond recognition in its 150 years. However, some qualities remain. These include our core values, which could be called the heart and soul of Sandvik:
- Open Mind – to constantly search for improvements, be open to change and encourage new ideas
- Fair Play – is about recognizing our responsibilities when conducting business
- Team Spirit – to act together as one team, in close co-operation with our stakeholders worldwide
A safe and healthy working environment, clear environmental and sustainability objectives, continuing investments in R&D and a comprehensive global presence provide the Group with a steady foundation to stand on. Add to this a strong business focus and close customer co-operation, and Sandvik is positioned for continued profitable growth, ready to take on the future in any shape or form.
The only thing certain about tomorrow is that it will be different from today and that the Sandvik journey will continue....
