The move includes production units in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and Sandviken, Sweden, the technical sales and product management organisation, as well as multi-year strategic collaboration on R&D for future product developments.

Shyam Kambeyanda, President of ESAB, says that adding the Sandvik welding operations and its associates “provides ESAB the opportunity to better serve customers with a broader and enhanced portfolio of stainless steel and nickel filler metals”.

ESAB will be working over the next several months to integrate the Sandvik welding consumables business and operations to provide a smooth transition for customers worldwide.
