Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) officially inaugurated its new global headquarters at Campus Lundby in Gothenburg, Sweden, on Monday Sept. 3. The company is now sharing a building with 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. 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,” says Melker Jernberg, president of Volvo CE. “Campus Lundby has brought us all together and it will help us build better, stronger working relationships that will benefit our customers.”

Campus Lundby is a large site, covering an area of 375,000 sq. m. – equivalent to 54 football pitches.
