Volvo CE Moving Global HQ From Brussels

By pdamon12 January 2017

Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) announced that the company’s global headquarters will move from its current location in Brussels, Belgium, to Gothenburg, Sweden. The relocation will facilitate closer cooperation with the Volvo Group’s other business areas and allow for better usage of the competence and resources of the whole Volvo Group, the company said.

“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,” said Martin Weissburg, president of Volvo CE and member of the group executive board. “It allows us to be physically closer to the other Volvo business areas and it will facilitate closer cooperation and sharing of best practices.

“Sweden is also home to approximately 4000 Volvo CE employees and where some of our largest manufacturing, commercial and technology sites are located.”

The Volvo CE headquarters will be operational in Gothenburg in the third quarter, the company said.
