With his personal visit in Aachen Klas Forsström, the President of Sandvik Coromant, underlines the importance of Sandvik’s new acquisition. Klas Forsström got an overview of PROMETEC and its product range by Dr. Klaus Christoffel, the new Managing Director of PROMETEC GmbH, met his new employees and looked into the current development projects.

January 25th Since January 25th 2016 Prometec GmbH is part of the Swedish Sandvik group. The determining factor for the acquisition by Sandvik Coromant is Prometec’s competence in the field of intelligent manufacturing, which, as a part of the global future-oriented project of digital manufacturing, also called Industry 4.0, is one of the innovation challenges of the Swedish corporate group.

Formally Prometec was acquired by Sandvik Tooling Deutschland GmbH and is integrated with Sandvik Coromant, a product area within Sandvik Machining Solutions. Sandvik Coromant is a renowned and worldwide leading supplier of machining tools and systems (for example indexable inserts and drills for the automotive industry).

This acquisition is a logical addition of the product range available for the customers for both Prometec and Sandvik Coromant, while it also assures sustainable development of the Prometec company. Nothing will change for our existing customers and clients, the contact persons stay the same. Prometec’s facility will still be located in Aachen and the Prometec brand will remain independent in coexistence with Sandvik Coromant. The new managing director of Prometec GmbH will be Dr. Klaus Christoffel, previously Manager Product Management & Design for Sandvik Tooling Deutschland. Prometec’s founder and previous managing director Dr. Werner Kluft will aid Prometec and its further development for the coming years, to promote continuity, innovation and success.
