Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) announced on 12 January that it is moving its global headquarters from Brussels, Belgium to Gothenburg, Sweden
Volvo CE announced last week that it is moving the company's global headquarters from its current location in Brussels, Belgium to Gothenburg, Sweden. Volvo said that 'the relocation will facilitate closer cooperation with the Group's other business areas and allow for better usage of the competence and resources of the whole Volvo Group.'
“Our Brussels location has served us well since the office opened in the 1980s and this move comes at the right time for Volvo CE as we continue to adapt our company to changing global business dynamics. It allows us to be physically closer to the other Volvo business areas and it will facilitate closer cooperation and sharing of best practices,” states Martin Weissburg, President of Volvo CE and Member of the Executive Board of the Volvo Group. “Sweden is also home to approximately 4,000 Volvo CE employees and where some of our largest manufacturing, commercial and technology sites are located,” adds Martin Weissburg.
The Volvo CE headquarters will be operational in Gothenburg in the third quarter of 2017.
