Sandvik Coromant Launches Carbide Recycling Campaign
The three-month program will donate money to Workshop for Warriors for each pound of carbide received.
Sandvik Coromant (Fair Lawn, New Jersey) has announced a carbide recycling campaign to benefit the Workshop for Warriors (WFW) nonprofit organization, which trains, certifies and places U.S. veterans in manufacturing careers. During the months of July, August and September 2014, Sandvik will donate $1 to WFW for each pound of recycled carbide (such as used inserts and tools) that it receives.
WFW President Hernán Luis y Prado said that, with the donation from last year's one-month campaign, his organization was able to complete a CAD/CAM lab, tripling its training capacity with that equipment. He added, "Seeing the results from a one-month campaign, we are excited about how many veterans can benefit from this year's three-month campaign."
In addition to paying per pound for recycled carbide during the campaign, Sandvik also offers the choice of recycling vouchers with discounts redeemable for the company's standard stock or products.
