CONNECTIONS

Meet our Members

Volvo
Volvo Group is a major global manufacturer of transportation and construction machinery, with a strong ethos for sustainability – building tomorrow today.  

The Volvo facility in Motherwell is home to two Volvo brands: Volvo Construction Equipment and Terex Trucks. This site has been designing and manufacturing rigid and articulated haulers for over 70 years.  These monster off-road trucks are built for the world’s toughest conditions and are equally at home in the desert as in the bitter cold of the Arctic.  

The team in Scotland recently launched the first Volvo branded rigid hauler. The launch won Gold at The Marketing Society Star Awards and Jacqueline Reid (Global Marketing Director) was shortlisted for Inspirational Marketing Leader.
