On Monday morning, August 29, 2022, a fire broke out in a furnace in the steel mill at Alleima (formerly Sandvik Materials Technology), at the industrial site in Sandviken, Sweden. The fire was extinguished within an hour. Five people sought medical attention but have left the hospital and are under the circumstances well. An investigation of the damage to the equipment has now been carried out. The assessment is that there will be no impact on customer commitments and deliveries, and that the impact on the financial performance will be limited to an effect on the operating profit by approximately SEK -10 million for the third quarter of 2022.
