Sandvik Hard Materials plans closure of production in Denmark

Sandvik Hard Materials has decided on closure of production of cemented-
carbide seal rings and wear parts in Espergaerde, Denmark, and transfer
production to the unit in Barcelona, Spain. The action affects slightly
more than 100 employees and is expected to be completed within the next
12 months. About 30 new employees will be recruited in Barcelona.

The closure is part of Sandvik Tooling's ongoing program of change that
comprises a concentration of the number of production and logistics
units to increase efficiency and profitability within the business area.

"Consolidation of the number of production units is necessary for our
continuing focus on areas with higher growth and profitability," says
Sven Flodmark, President of Sandvik Hard Materials.
