Volvo CE EC380 excavatorAfter nearly 40 years in Belgium, Volvo Construction Equipment has announced that the company will be moving home.

The heavy equipment manufacturer will be relocating its global headquarters from Brussels to Gothenburg, Sweden, the home of the Volvo Group.

Volvo CE says the move “will facilitate closer cooperation with the Group’s other business areas and allow for better usage of the competence and resources of the whole Volvo Group.”

“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,” explains Volvo CE president Martin Weissburg. “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 4,000 Volvo CE employees and where some of our largest manufacturing, commercial and technology sites are located.”

Volvo CE says it plans for its Gothenburg headquarters to be operational by the third quarter of this year.
