Volvo Construction Equipment was established in Great Britain in 1967, quickly establishing a reputation for market leading quality equipment and unrivalled customer support.

Our comprehensive range of wheeled loaders, articulated haulers, excavators and utility equipment has been enhanced by the addition of road paving and maintenance machinery.

Operating from eight Customer Support Centres throughout Great Britain, supplemented by strategically located home based engineers, we are able to offer the level of support that you would expect from a global construction equipment manufacturer.

Our three core values of Quality, Safety and Care for the Environment set the standards behind our actions and processes. Our concern for sustainable systems, responsible recycling and the environment has set new benchmarks in the industry. We are one of the first major construction equipment distributors in Great Britain to achieve full certification of its management systems against recognised ISO 9001; 14001 and 18001 standards at all of our eight customer support outlets strategically located around the country.
