In November, the first excavator rolled out of Volvo CE's new excavator plant in Bangalore, India. The production of excavators will increase substantially during 2012. The plant will continue to manufacture road machinery. The new excavator line is part of a SEK 144 M investment to upgrade the plant. The local production of excavators will mean greater machine availability for Indian customers, as well as shorten delivery lead times and respond to customer requirements more quickly.
