Volvo Group Trucks presents Dürr with supplier award
Gothenburg, March 2016 – Volvo Group Trucks has presented Dürr with the Volvo Group Purchasing Supplier Award 2016 in the "Total Value Management Excellence" category, thus acknowledging the excellent services and the cooperation in many projects. During the awards ceremony, the OEM stated that Dürr's solutions help the Volvo Group stay within its budget and achieve the quality and production targets for its plants.
The award ceremony took place on February 23 in Gothenburg, the hometown of the Swedish commercial vehicle manufacturer. It was the second time that suppliers were honored in a total of six categories.
The collaboration between Volvo Group Trucks and Dürr began in 1983. Since then, the mechanical and plant engineering firm has completed many projects for the commercial vehicle manufacturer, such as the expansion of a paint shop in Curitiba (Brazil) in 2013 – without interrupting production. A year later Dürr installed test stands for chassis and driver assistance systems at the same site. In 2015 Dürr completed the construction of a paint shop in Kaluga (Russia). Volvo Group Trucks' New River Valley site (United States) is currently being expanded to include a plastic component paint shop. In addition, the existing system is being upgraded so it will also be suitable for painting Mack Trucks cabs.
Volvo Group Trucks with its brands Volvo Trucks, Renault Trucks, Mack Trucks, UD Trucks and Eicher Motors belongs to the Volvo Group. The world's second largest commercial vehicle manufacturer works with around 30,000 suppliers. The Volvo Group also includes Volvo Buses and Volvo Construction Equipment (for construction machines and drive systems).
