The Volvo Group has products with strong brand names that have been built up over a long time. The Volvo Group’s mission includes “using our combined expertise to create transport-related products and services of superior quality, safety and environmental care for demanding customers in selected segments.”
Volvo Group is offering such services as financing, leasing and insurance, action services, warranty, rentals, IT solutions and logistical operations. They also offer various forms of service agreements, accessories and spare parts to support core products. The Volvo Group's increasingly broad range of these soft products now has evolved into a more distinct competitive advantage.
North America is a major market for the Volvo Group, representing nearly 20 percent of the Group’s 2011 sales. The Volvo Group employs more than 15,000 people in North America, and operates manufacturing facilities in six U.S. states, as well as in Canada and Mexico.
The Volvo Group's vision is to become the world leader in sustainable transport solutions by: creating value for customers in selected segments; pioneering products and services for the transport and infrastructure industries; driving quality, safety and environmental care; and working with energy, passion and respect for the individual.
