Sandvik holds family day

Sandvik held a family day at the Vasa Museum in Stockholm. Employees and family members gathered to get a close look at the warship, take part in guided tours and learn about Sandvik’s advanced materials used for the new bolts in the ship. With over 900 satisfied visitors, the day was a success.

Sandvik has helped in saving the Vasa ship through research collaboration with the Vasa Museum. Over 5000 old corroding steel bolts have been replaced by unique bolts made using an advanced material from Sandvik. The bolts are expected to last for at least 150 years, preserving the warship for future generations.

“We hope that the day has inspired both adults and children”, says Tina Wilhelmsson at Sandvik Group Communications in Sweden, one of the main organizers of the day. “Who knows, maybe there are some of our future engineers among the children.”
