Volvo CE invests in a new paint shop

By Tim Wright

Published June 25, 2008
Volvo CE is investing SEK341 million (~$56 million) in a new paint shop in the company’s articulated hauler plant in Braås, Sweden. This investment will lead to an increase in capacity in the plant, a reduced impact on the environment and added improvement in quality, the company said.

The total market for articulated haulers has more than doubled in recent years and current demand is greater than ever before. In order to meet this increased demand, during the past few years, Volvo CE has made running investments to boost capacity in the articulated hauler plant in Braås. It is now the paint shop’s turn and it will be replaced by an entirely new facility that will be completed in 2010.

The investment in the new paint shop will increase capacity by approximately 55% compared with the existing one. This will also result in a number of improvements with respect to the environment, such as a reduction of approximately 75% in emissions of VOCs, which above all can be attributed to a switch from solventborne to waterborne paints.
