Volvo Buses Changes Business Model In Europe, To Close Bodybuilding Factory In Wroclaw, Poland

Volvo Buses has announced it is changing its business model in Europe, and will apply the same model as it has in several other markets. This means that Volvo Buses will focus its production on chassis, and together with external bodybuilders, offer customers in Europe a complete range of city and intercity buses as well as coaches for the premium segment. Consequently, Volvo Buses has decided to close its bodybuilding factory in Wroclaw, Poland, during the first quarter of 2024.

Volvo Buses has signed a Letter of Intent regarding the divestment of its premises to Vargas Holding.

“Moving forward, Volvo Buses will continue to offer customers in Europe a complete range of buses and coaches in partnership with selected external bodybuilders, while securing a strong uptime service and a high standard of safety and quality. This will give Volvo Buses a leaner structure, improved flexibility, and the ability to better meet market requirements and customer demands,” according to a company press release.

Bodybuilding manufacturing in Wroclaw is planned to continue until the first quarter of 2024. Orders placed for complete buses and coaches in Europe will be delivered from the Wroclaw plant according to plan. Volvo Buses will continue to give full service and support to the existing fleet as well as to the new offering.
