Volvo Plant

Volvo Construction Equipment is a division of the Swedish Volvo Group, that also includes Volvo Trucks and Volvo Penta engines. Known primarily for its market-leading articulated haulers and wheeled loaders, Volvo now produces a wide range of machinery, including mini excavators backhoe loaders, crawler and wheeled excavators and motorgraders.

The firm builds equipment in Europe, the Americas and the Far East and has a global network of dealers and support centres. A highly integrated company, Volvo tends to build its own engines, transmissions and axles for many machines, allowing efficient powertrain matching and reduced spares inventory for dealers and customers.

More recently, the firm acquired the road building machinery division of Ingersoll-Rand, which includes milling machines, pavers and a range of compaction equipment, all of which is now branded and sold as Volvo. Volvo has always been very strong on after-sales support, as the company owns its heavy machinery dealer network in Great Britain. This includes eight regional depots, all offering sales, parts and service back-up. The company's compact equipment range is also sold through a network of smaller independent dealers around England, Wales and Scotland.

In Ireland, Volvo machinery is sold through Pat O'Donnell, with three depots in the Republic and one in Northern Ireland.     

Volvo equipment has strong residual values, particularly the larger machinery that has often been looked after under manufacturer repair and maintenance contracts. Volvo dealers worldwide all adhere to a set of used equipment criteria, allowing a dealer in one country to instantly assess a used machines condition in another region.
