Sandvik expands Québec footprint with Val-d’Or expansion

Sandvik Mining and Rock Solutions is growing its footprint in Québec with the opening of its newly expanded Val-d’Or facility on October 20, 2022. Spanning more than 55,000 square feet (5,100 square meters), the strategic investment effectively doubles the building’s size and includes significantly increased parts warehouse space, an expanded workshop, facilities for automation support, customer service and rock tools shop.

Securing a larger parts warehouse and service center was a priority to support a rapidly growing mining market in Québec and to expand local support capacity for customers.

“We’re very pleased to announce the official opening of this newly expanded facility in Val-d’Or, Québec,” said Peter Corcoran, Vice President of Sales Area Canada at Sandvik Mining and Rock Solutions. “This is not only an opportunity to bring more jobs to the area, but it also allows us to further expand our aftermarket capabilities and meet the rapidly changing demands of the Québec market.”

Sandvik celebrated the grand opening of the facility with an open house last week.

“This is the perfect opportunity to discover an innovative and flourishing company that has chosen Val-d'Or to pursue its growth,” said Val-d’Or Mayoress Celine Brindamour, who participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the occasion. “Through its investments, Sandvik contributes to the fact that Val-d’Or is an essential service hub for the mining industry.”

The Val-d’Or facility expansion project is one step in a more comprehensive evaluation of Sandvik’s network across Canada. Through strategic projects like this, Sandvik will remain at the forefront of the mining industry by providing outstanding customer service for both current and prospective partners.
