Equipment giant moves into Campus Lundby in Gothenburg, sharing premises with other Volvo Group companies
Volvo Construction Equipment has moved into its new global headquarters located on the same premises as other Volvo Group businesses in the southern Swedish city of Gothenburg.
The construction equipment giant officially inaugurated its new global HQ at Campus Lundby earlier this month, marking the move with an official inauguration ceremony attended by senior company leaders and around 500 employees.
The company is now sharing a building with sister Volvo Group concerns Volvo Buses – which moved in on the same day – and Volvo Penta. The building is situated close to the Volvo Group headquarters and other Volvo business areas at Campus Lundby.
According to Volvo CE, the move will help to facilitate the sharing of resources, best practice and competence, as well as creating even more opportunities for collaboration.
“At Volvo CE we have always collaborated with other parts of the Volvo Group, but our new shared headquarters will facilitate closer collaboration and cooperation,” said Melker Jernberg, president, Volvo CE. “Campus Lundby has brought us all together and it will help us build better, stronger working relationships that will benefit our customers.”
The inauguration ceremony that took place at Campus Lundby was attended by Melker Jernberg as well as Håkan Agnevall, president, Volvo Buses, and Björn Ingemanson, president, Volvo Penta. The three company presidents delivered speeches to an audience of around 500 Volvo employees and the celebrations continued throughout the morning.
Campus Lundby is a large site, covering an area of 375,000sqm – equivalent to 54 football pitches. Volco said that from its glass-fronted buildings to its open-plan office layouts, Campus Lundby is designed to get people talking and working together. It is home to a diverse, international workforce with employees from 60 countries based at the site.
