Our history - 1993

1993

  • A serious and at times heated debate took place in the autumn, culminating in, not a merger, but a divorce between the Renault Group and Volvo. The consequences were that the Board, led by Pehr G Gyllenhammar, resigned with immediate effect.
  • Division of Procordia's operations into two parts, whereby BCP (the consumer group) became a subsidiary within the Volvo Group.
  • Volvo presented a new generation of trucks this year - the Volvo FH series was introduced, the safest, most ergonomic and profitable trucks so far.
