Volvo Trucks, in collaboration with Iraqi partners ZamZam General, unveiled two new truck centers in Iraq with a third on the way, as part of their Middle East growth strategy.
The new truck centers are in Baghdad and Basra, with the third planned in Erbil by the end of 2013, the company said in a statement. These developments will be accompanied by the set-up of an assembly line in Babylon-Iskandariya, which will be one of the first truck assembly lines in the country.
The new developments are a crucial element of Volvo Group Trucks Middle East’s strategy, in achieving a target of 30 per cent by 2015.
In addition to the two new facilities, there are now 48 truck centers across the GCC. The group also aims to focus on training and competence development, as well as expansion though network and density enlargement.
