Volvo Trucks are a mainstay of the UK haulage industry. Renowned for their durability as well as innovation, they’ve established a solid reputation over the years as trucks that can be relied upon. Volvo Trucks remains part of the Volvo Group, a Swedish multinational manufacturing company headquartered in Gothenburg. As well as trucks, the company produces buses, construction equipment, and industrial and marine engines. Alongside these, it also manufactures various other products related to transportation and infrastructure. Is this still the case when it comes to Volvo Truck parts and components? Where are Volvo parts made today and how difficult are they to find in the UK?
Who makes Volvo engines?
One of the great strengths of Volvo Trucks and the reason why they’re so well-regarded by hauliers worldwide is the quality and reliability of their engines.
The engines for Volvo Trucks are primarily produced by Volvo Powertrain, a division of the Volvo Group, in dedicated facilities in Sweden, the United States and other locations. This approach allows Volvo to maintain high-quality control while being able to meet the complex demands of the global market. Volvo engines are manufactured with precision to ensure that they meet the exacting standards associated with the Volvo brand.
This commitment to quality, innovation and reliability is what marks out Volvo Trucks as a firm favourite across the industry globally.
Are Volvo Trucks made in the UK?
Primary facilities for most Volvo Trucks sold in the UK market are located in Sweden, Germany and France. Volvo Motherwell, in the UK, designs, develops, manufactures and fully supports two ranges of Rokbak articulated haulers and Volvo rigid haulers for the global construction market.
Volvo Trucks operates a decentralised manufacturing operation globally to better meet the needs of different international markets. At heart, it remains a strongly Swedish company, with a significant portion of its manufacturing operation still taking place within its home country.
Are Volvo Truck parts made in China?
Volvo operates a global supply chain meaning that some Volvo Truck parts may be manufactured in China. However, the company places a strong emphasis on quality control, ensuring that every part wherever it is manufactured, meets the same rigorous Volvo standards.
When you use Volvo Truck parts you can be confident of a high-quality product that is designed and manufactured to meet the precise demands of the haulage industry.
