Sandvik investing USD 50 million in new Nevada facility

To better serve its mining customers in the United States, Sandvik is investing more than USD 50 million in the company’s largest US facility to date, in Elko, Nevada.

Construction will begin in Q4 2023 and the new facility is expected to open in Q1 2025. It will cover 14 acres (5.67 hectares) and replace the company’s existing Elko office and separate warehouse.

The 51.4-MUSD investment includes larger warehouse and workshop facilities. The new 31,250-square-foot (2,900-square-meter) warehouse will nearly triple the size of the existing Elko warehouse, while the workshop will grow from 17,800 square feet (1,650 square meters) to 25,000 square feet (2,325 square meters). The two-story facility will also include 13,800 square feet (1,280 square meters) of office and training space. Designed with circularity, waste reduction and carbon footprint top of mind, the completely new facility will include dedicated infrastructure to support BEVs, a training center, welding areas, a painting booth and a simulator area. The facility will accommodate the current 85 employees with additional capacity for training and growth.

“This facility will be our largest of several branches serving the US mining market,” said Victor Tapia, Vice President, Sales Area USA, Sandvik Mining and Rock Solutions. “We are creating a new, modern work environment for our people, and in turn, for our customers, who operate in rapidly changing market conditions with fast-evolving technology. The new building will facilitate increased collaboration opportunities and enable us to better serve our customers for years to come.”
