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.”
The inauguration ceremony took place at Campus Lundby and was attended by Melker Jernberg as well as Håkan Agnevall, president of Volvo Buses, and Björn Ingemanson, president of Volvo Penta. The three company presidents delivered speeches to an audience of around 500 Volvo employees and the celebrations continued throughout the morning.
Campus Lundby is a large site, covering an area of 375,000m2 — equivalent to 54 football pitches. From its glass-fronted buildings to its open-plan office layouts, Campus Lundby is designed to get people talking and working together. It is home to a diverse, international workforce with employees from 60 countries based at the site.
