Volvo Trucks in High Demand, set to increase capacity
Following record demand and strong ongoing orders in New Zealand & Australia, the Volvo Trucks Factory in Wacol Queensland has again increased capacity to help ease the pressure and ensure future capability to meet customer’s needs.
Vice President Volvo Truck Sales Australia, Mitch Peden, says that “On-going demand in New Zealand has been a large part of the decision to further increase build capacity. We recognise though, there are a number of customers who haven’t been able to wait. Ramping up production however, is a complex process and it’s vital that we focus on recruitment, training and our quality processes to ensure we maintain the market leading quality standards our customers expect from Volvo. Every time we have increased supply in 2017, demand has quickly outstripped it. Although we are very confident that in 2018 we will be in a position to build more trucks than our customers, both in New Zealand and Australia, will have demand for”.
