Volvo Center, Poland
Throughout Europe there is an intensifying need for transport solutions and building of new infrastructure, particularly between east and west, resulting in increased demand for heavy trucks, construction equipment and buses.

The new Volvo Center, situated about 30 kilometers from Warsaw, comprises workshops, a training school as well as different offices for Volvo Trucks, Volvo Construction Equipment, Volvo Buses and Volvo Financial Services.

For Volvo Trucks, the center will house the head office of Region Central East as well as the head office of the Volvo Truck Center Poland organization.

Investments in the new facilities were made by Volvo Polska Sp. zo.o., a company wholly owned by the Volvo Group. The investments also got EU funded financial support from the Polish Government.

The new Volvo Center will serve as a model multifunctional service station, which will help implement Volvo’s standards in factory-owned and independent authorized service stations in Eastern Europe. Genuine Volvo service is a key element in the Group’s strategy of delivering total transport solutions. It also serves as the definition of the service level and standard that every Volvo workshop is required to offer.
