A dedicated commitment to safety and the ability to deliver trucks designed to operate in the toughest of Australian conditions is what sets Volvo Trucks apart.
While it’s the job of Australia’s dedicated firefighters to keep everyday Australians safe, Volvo see its job as helping to keep our firefighters safe.
The Volvo FMX comes packed with a range of market leading safety features, including forward collision warning, advanced braking system and energy absorbing cab design.
Mark Strambi, Vice President of State & Federal Sales said: “Safety is in Volvo’s DNA, whether it is inventing the seatbelt or continually working on new innovations, we have a strong track record as safety leaders.
“Our vehicles are uncompromising when it comes to safety and they are designed to offer maximum protection to the occupants, other road users and pedestrians.”
Safety has always been a core value for Volvo, but they also understand how important it is to offer a product that can be customised to suit a range of applications.
Volvo Trucks benefit from being part of the Volvo Group – Australia’s largest automotive manufacturer. The Australian engineering team is committed to providing the best solutions to its customers, with locally engineered platforms built to perform in Australia’s harshest conditions.
Volvo Group has invested tens’ of millions of dollars in its Wacol factory, where it employs over 500 people and supports hundreds of jobs through the local supply chain.
As part of the local team, Volvo has a team of engineers who focus exclusively on special builds, such as the emergency services market.
Volvo knows every operator has different needs and demands, as such the FMX, can be customised with a range of specialised emergency services packages.
“As an Australian manufacturer, Volvo fully understands the diverse and often harsh conditions found in Australia,” said Mark.
“Our emergency services need a vehicle they can rely on and we work closely with our customers to deliver the product they want and need.
“Whether it is a bespoke cab, transmission or horsepower variations, Volvo have a range of options to suit every application.”
This local design and manufacturing ability is backed up by the dedicated State and Federal Sales organisation. An experienced team who have detailed knowledge and understanding of the challenges emergency service operators face every day.
This team works closely with customers and stakeholders to truly understand what they require, with the aim of making the process as smooth as possible.
Support doesn’t end once the truck has been delivered. Volvo offer bespoke servicing agreements that maximise uptime and with Australia’s largest dealer network, you’re never far away from expert help.
Mark said: “Volvo is committed to engineering excellence and we work with our customers to deliver the product they need.
“The demands placed on the emergency services are extreme and they rely on their equipment to help saves lives and property.
“It’s in these situations, when every second counts, you need a product you can reply on and Volvo trucks are built to perform.”
