Truck sales have increased steadily and up to end August this year, Volvo Trucks has delivered 715 trucks, an increase of 76 percent over the same period last year.
“We have a strong position in Russia and with the establishment of the new service center we will be able to grow even further,” Staffan Jufors, President and CEO of Volvo Trucks said at the inauguration. “Service and maintenance are important to our customers and the next stage is to establish a similar operation in Moscow.”
Volvo Trucks already has 26 authorised service stations in Russia. The new facility is strategically located just south of St. Petersburg on the motorway to Moscow. The service facility also houses sales offices for Volvo Trucks and for other companies within the Volvo Group. The workshop is fully equipped so it can perform repairs and maintenance on all types of Volvo products – from trucks to buses, construction equipment and industrial engines.
