Production and investments

In recent years, Volvo Penta made significant investments in a new global logistics system. The new system, which was launched in 2010, will facilitate streamlining the entire chain from order to delivery.

Production in the plants in Vara, Sweden and Lexington, USA had low capacity utilization resulting from continued weak demand for marine engines globally.

As a result of the increasingly strong demand for industrial engines, Volvo Penta was able to contribute to higher capacity utilization in the Volvo Group’s joint diesel engine plants in Skövde, Sweden and Lyon, France.
