In a meeting recently organised at its manufacturing and assembly facility in Bengaluru, the company has announced its plan to focus on construction segment and displayed the range of solutions.

That is important for us as, for us at Volvo Trucks; all our offerings emerge from the customers’ needs and end with their satisfaction with a focus on customers’ success.”
