Volvo Construction Equipment moves headquartersVolvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) will move the company’s global headquarters from its current location in Gothenburg, Sweden, to Eskilstuna, Sweden. Eskilstuna is already a large cross-functional workplace for Volvo CE, with around 2,500 employees from different functions. The move forms part of an ongoing project to strengthen collaboration and innovation with local educational, social and business hubs – such as Malardalen University, with whom Volvo CE already enjoys a close partnership through which to develop future engineering talent and grow new perspectives and innovations to benefit the company. 

The new corporate headquarters already is home to the company’s technology and customer centers and will be operational in August 2023.  

“With the rapidly changing environment we are living in and the culture we are building, it is a great opportunity to present at one of our largest global sites. Having our headquarters here will strengthen our collaboration with local educational, social and business hubs, and bring us closer to our operational work. We will of course continue the great and important collaboration with our colleagues across the entire Volvo Group, as well as with our worldwide partners,” said Melker Jernberg, head of Volvo CE. 

“Volvo CE has had a presence in Eskilstuna from as far back as 1832 and it has always played an important role in the local community. We see this decision as boosting Eskilstuna’s image as an attractive business location for companies from Sweden and abroad,” said Jimmy Jansson, chairman of the executive board of Eskilstuna Municipality.
