Volvo Group Southern Africa, in partnership with Titanium Motors, has opened a new dealer facility in the Zambian capital, Lusaka, in a R130-million investment.
The dealership will provide services to Volvo Trucks and UD Trucks customers operating in the region.
“Zambia is a key African market for Volvo Group. Apart from its very central location in Southern Africa, it also has exciting potential as a developing market with a growing economy and emerging infrastructure,” says Volvo Group Southern Africa president Torbjörn Christensson.
“We are proud to partner with Titanium Motors in Zambia, and we are looking forward to effectively support our local customers, and to grow our overall market share in the region.”
Christensson says transport, and especially trucks, are essential to the region’s growth, and to drive development and progress. For this reason, Volvo also has a representative office in Lusaka, to harness this potential and to provide support from head office.
The 7 500 m² dealership consists of a showroom and a training facility. It also hosts six work bays, trained and accredited technicians, mobile service units, a parts warehouse, as well as dedicated sales teams for each of the brands.
Volvo Trucks and UD Trucks are both owned by the Volvo group.
