Headquartered in Houston, USA, Inrock is a market leader in pilot hole bits, reamers, guidance systems, accessories and services for the premium maxi rig segment within HDD.
“In line with our strategy, this demonstrates how we gear up for growth organically and through acquisitions in areas where we are stable and profitable, aiming for world-leading market positions. I welcome Inrock to our Group”, says Björn Rosengren, CEO and President of Sandvik.
The combined expertise of Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology and Inrock will support further development of the HDD product portfolio to customers operating and servicing infrastructure applications such as oil and gas pipelines, water and sewer, telecommunications, electricity and alternative energy production and storage. This includes expanding into the midi rig segment, accelerating the global footprint of the business but also realizing synergies within production.
